Nashville’s Ren Schofield, a mind-bending multi-instrumentalist with a history of noise, drone, and tape-collage psychedelia, takes a stab at heavy beat-oriented electronics with his Container project. In 2009, after a string of harsh, leftfield releases as God Willing on his cassette label I Just Live Here, for Container he applied compositional techniques and musical approaches that are more akin to noise, offering lo-fi, crunchy textures and elemental, warbling techno. His debut album LP – one of the most celebrated electronic records of 2011 – was released on the Editions Mego sub-label Spectrum Spools. As an exercise and challenge specifically for MUTEK, Container will experiment with and incorporate modular synthesizers in his live set up for the first time.

L'artiste de Nashville Ren Schofield œuvre depuis 2009 tel un multi-instrumentalisme sous le nom de Container, effectuant des collages psychédéliques à base d'éléments noise, drone et rythmes électroniques énergiques. Ses compositions reposent sur une riche texture musicale, fusionnant les divers éléments sonores en d'inlassables boucles en perpétuelle mutation. Il a sorti un premier album très remarqué en 2011, LP, sur le sous-label d'Editions Mego, Spectrum tools. Pour MUTEK, l'artiste intégrera pour la première fois des synthétiseurs modulaires au sein de sa performance live.
