Virtual.mutek.org: Interconnectivity, exploration and mutation
6 rooms: 2 virtual stages, Virtual Gallery, Listening Room, Auditorium and Replay Room (on-demand)
For the MUTEK.ES+AR 2021 edition, the virtual.mutek.org platform presents its most evolved version so far, offering us the opportunity to get closer and connect as never before with the entire MUTEK International Network.
All this will be presented in 3 different time zones: CEST (Spain), GMT-3 (Argentina), GMT+9 (Japan).
1 Auditorium: Conference room where a selection of masterclasses and presentations of the recent 'MUTEK Symposium: a future without gender' will be offered as well as different activities of the Digi Lab program of MUTEK.ES+AR, organized by artists in the fields of sound design and digital creativity.
2 Virtual Stages: As stages, these 2 rooms will host the shows of almost 50 MUTEK.ES+AR artists, with unique visual and sound qualities, plus the 18 performances of the MUTEK Connect program from Canada, Mexico, Japan and the city of Valencia.
1 Virtual Gallery: Museum space that will be maintained throughout the festival and in which you will find a curated selection of digital art and immersive video pieces.
1 Listening Room: Virtual space that will offer a selection of immersive sound pieces and deep listening.
1 REPLAY stage: From May 3 to 9, all the contents of virtual.mutek.org can be seen for free at the times stipulated for each day's premieres. With the access ticket to the REPLAY stage, for only 10€ you can watch all the contents on-demand, and enjoy as many times as you want the total program during the rest of the month of May.
Listening Room Artists:
After two years of production and taking advantage of the latest technologies in 3D binaural audio, Alejandro Mosso presents Other Worlds, four immersive and hypnotic musical pieces exclusively designed for listening with headphones. Each composition is a perfect combination of electronics and acoustic instruments merging into a slow and organic pulse.
Taking different fractal landscapes as a starting point, Microfeel presents Fractal Listening 001; animations that play with the dynamics of surprise, synesthesia, and visual impact. Sensations for mental journeys and landscapes synthesized in living textures, an experience full of fractal shapes and sacred geometry.
For the last three years, MUTEKES has been collaborating with the BAU University Design Center in Barcelona in different actions of its educational program. In this edition Catalina Ansaldi, Marta Minguell (GHTRSA), Anna Carreras and Diego Suárez, all students of the Master in Audiovisual Innovation and Interactive Environments, present 4 audiovisual pieces in the Virtual Gallery. In the framework of this collaboration, the BAU Na.B3 students collective presents their piece #OBJ. 1 at Roca Barcelona Gallery.
