An auteur in her own right, Sara Magnan, aka Magnanime, creates a techno-house hybrid rife with experimental nuances, embracing mistakes of technology and recycling odd noises into her perpetually evolving, beat driven repertoire. Her music takes inspiration from her cosmopolitan experience, in constant reinvention and metamorphosis and not without a sociopolitical side and authenticities – during her 2012 MUTEK performance, she let loose an unhinged techno pow-wow in honour of First Nations people and an outdoor show supporting Montréal’s Occupy movement.
