New highlights for our Edition 16:
Collaboration has been one of the pillars of MUTEK MX throughout 16 years of history. Each year, cultural, academic and diplomatic institutions have joined management efforts with the festival in order to offer a diverse program for our audience through a range of locations, artists, and experiences. For our Edition 16 we are excited to present different alliances that enrich our programming this year and extend the circuit of possible activities for our attendants throughout the week of the festival:
Noiselab & WHITEVoid present: SKALAR by Christopher Bauder & Kangding Ray @ Frontón México
Thanks to Noiselab and WHITEVoid, Mexico City will have the international premiere of SKALAR after their debut and residency in Berlin. This mega-installation by the illumination artist Christopher Bauder and the music producer Kangding Ray will take over the space of Frontón México with a loop of multidimensional sound and vibrant drawings and light atmospheres. By combining a vast array of kinetic mirrors, perfectly synchronized moving lights and a sophisticated multi-channel sound system, SKALAR reflects on the fundamental nature and essence of basic human emotions.

Brian Eno presents Condensor @ Nocturne 1 and 2
In collaboration with FF projects
Eno is considered an icon of contemporary international culture. During the last forty years; the British artists has not only been fundamentally influential in the music scene, but has also caught the attention of critics and curators as an experimental and innovative multimedia artist. Condensor is an immersive piece that pushes the boundaries of contemplative experiences: a ‘painting’ capable of generating infinite combinations of ‘colorscapes’ accompanied by an audio piece composed as Generative Music, a concept developed by Eno, in which compositions change once they have been played, as all systems behind said compositions introduce a type of randomness. Thus, Condensor has become a different aesthetic experience for each audience that has come across this piece.

Presented by Adidas
