International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

In 2001, Franz Pomassl composed a piece simply titled 2001, effectively offering his personal stamp in creating a modernised version of the soundtrack to the film 2001: A Space Odyssey by Stanley Kubrick. This gives an inkling of insight into an enigmatic personality that has sifted through numerous pseudonyms, and witnessed multiple variations of the Viennese electronic scene since the late 1980s. As a product of Vienna, Pomassl is one of the emblematic figures of a sonic pursuit pushed to the extreme. He is perceived as a precursor, in the same manner as Carl Michael von Hauswolff (with whom he collaborates often), and as a father figure to the likes of Carsten Nicolai, Mika Vainio, Pita, Goem or Otomo Yoshihide. Uniquely realized thanks to prototypes and electro-acoustic instruments that he developed himself, Pomassl's current work is the quintessence of power and astonishment among all the musical genres that he's explored as an artist up to this point-but reduced to their simplest parameters. Attending a Franz Pomassl concert is to be exposed to the secular forces of the elements; it's navigating mind and body through a sonic maelstrom with no map whatsoever. Fuelled by a reputation for being an unparalleled performer, yet relatively unknown by North American audiences, Franz Pommasl has shrewdly decided to make his mark at this year's MUTEK festival. And he's more than capable!
