Discover MUTEK cutting edge artists

International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

The sonic world of the Montréal- based, Iranian Canadian artist GOLPESAR (Rouzbeh Shadpey), is one which blurs the edges of experimental, club, and academic forms of electronic music. Having completed a BFA in Electroacoustic Music at Concordia University in 2019, GOLPESAR’s current sound research and work examines the use of AI in electronic music as well as decolonial praxis and approaches in sound studies. He has presented work at MUTEK AI Art Lab, MUTEK Montréal, Phi Centre, Ada x, and Suoni Per Il Popolo.

His recent release for Opal Tapes, The Flesh of the World, balanced abrasive textures and tender vocal samples to express the difficulties of coping with contemporary geopolitics. Never predictable, GOLPESAR’s music crackles with energy — the expression of queer embodiment and desire, with the thorniness and ecstasy it can entail. His debut LP A Body Without, and in Need is set to be released on Éditions Appaerent in Fall 2021.

Sam Bourgault is a visual artist from Montréal. She is a second-year Ph.D. student in the Media Arts and Technology program at the University of California, Santa Barbara. She owns degrees in Computation Arts from Concordia University (2019) and in Physics Engineering from Polytechnique Montreal (2015).
