MUTEK Festival is back in the dome of the Society for Arts and Technology [SAT] with a program of six works and performances created in research-creation residencies at the SAT, and presented as world premiere.

The Satosphère Series is an invitation to explore new conceptual and sensory territories, with audiovisual creations merging different disciplines. From August 24 to September 5, the following works will be presented: BEATS, Biliminal, Antilogy, corps minéral, Permanence, and Cerebral Wastelands.

Since their founding over twenty years ago, MUTEK and SAT have been dedicated to the development of innovative forms of digital, sound and visual creation. Together, the two organizations contribute to the emergence of a new generation of creators and artists.

Here are more details of the program:

Satosphère 1 + 2

BEATS CA/QC+FR/QC
Tuesday August 24 • Wednesday August 25 • 8 p.m.
World Premiere

BEATS is a performance combining contemporary dance, visual projections and sound creation. The use of multimedia technologies acts as a dialogue engine and allows the interaction between the different parts. Thus, with the help of a connected stethoscope and stick, the movement danced on stage influences the visuals and creates sound, these parameters subsequently influence the movements, and so on. Constantly searching for the limits between disciplines, the work plays on the notion of contrasts as a basis for a universal territory.

SANSPERTE_LOSSLESS CA/QCbiliminal
Thursday August 26 • Friday August 27 • 8 p.m.
World Premiere

biliminal is an immersive A/V performance that explores the different ways in which sound and visual material, whether real or inspired by the real world, can be distorted using algorithmic transformation systems to create ethereal atmospheres whose various elements are at the limit of the perceptible but vaguely reminiscent of their original form. The audience is plunged into a universe in constant tension, between meditative lullabies and chaotic deflagrations, where sound spatialization and immersive projections envelop and blur the fine line that separates the real from the virtual.

Satosphère 5 + 6

SUSY.TECHNOLOGY CA/QC+MXAntilogy
Saturday August 28 • Sunday August 29 • 8 p.m.
World Premiere

Antilogy is an immersive performance designed for the Satosphere in which spatialized audio, 360 video, and virtual reality converge with live sound performances and, for the first time for the collective, choreographed movement created by Paige Culley. Unveiling the sonic and visual worlds of Valeda, /||\||\, Witnessing and Teo Zamudio, Antilogy conjures an alternate reality that draws the viewer deep into a story exploring consciousness and the interrelated dimensions of our shared existence.

Satosphère 7 + 8

le désert mauve CA/QC+FR/QCcorps minéral
Tuesday August 31 • Wednesday September 1 • 8 p.m.
World Premiere

Inspired by geology, science fiction, and documentary archives, corps minéral is an immersive film that integrates a narrative co-written by the artists Gabrielle HB and Charline Dally. This one connects the space of our lives and our sensible experiences with geological phenomena of immeasurable temporality. The layers of memory, whether they are contained in the rock or in our cells, are part of a cycle from sedimentation to disintegration. The work invites us to apprehend these processes with attention and empathy in order to consider their slowness as a means to heal even the deepest fractures.

Satosphère 9 + 10

FROID CA/QCPermanence
Thursday September 2 • Friday September 3 • 8 p.m.
World Premiere

Death and rebirth are the central themes of this new project. With Permanence, FROID takes us on a journey through desolate landscapes, in a world devoid of warmth but bathed in a light of its own. A stripped down visual expression and a mix of harsh vibrations, cavernous atmospheres, striking synths and broken strings will carry the viewer towards this impression of perpetuity. Permanence is a study and an attempt to dwell in eternal existence; a guided journey through the most simplistic state of being.

Satosphère 11 + 12

Axel Helios CA/QCCerebral Wastelands
Saturday September 4 • Sunday September 5 • 8 p.m.
World Premiere

With Drichtel, his previous audiovisual performance, Axel Helios explored themes of loneliness, anxiety and fear. His new creation, Cerebral Wastelands, is an interactive audiovisual performance for dome and could be considered a logical continuation of Drichtel. Cerebral Wastelands is about coming to terms with your inner demons and getting rid of acquired prejudices by facing them. As an interactive performance, Cerebral Wastelands will allow the audience to take control of certain aspects of the performance in real time, thanks to data provided by their cell phones.
