16th Edition: May 27-31, 2015 // Montréal
MUTEK is an international festival of digital arts and electronic music. Held over 5 days, the festival explores the many facets of cutting edge live electronic music. It also provides a forum for exchange about the artistic practice underlying the electronic music scene.
The festival has featured a host of well known electronic artists over the years, while also reserving a special place for emergent Canadian artists. Live audiovisual performances are also one of the important dimensions of the program.
Underling its sense of continuity and development, MUTEK also features a professional component, DIGI_SECTION, which involves panel discussions, presentations, artist Q&As, technology and instrument showrooms and workshops. DIGI_SECTION addresses artists, but also individuals who play active roles in the economic, media related, and technological spheres of the electronic sector. Over the years, this professional component has increased in prominence, and has instilled itself as a unique and essential part of the festival.
Over the years, MUTEK has expanded its cultural network through various initiatives internationally, touring in unexpected places like China, Brazil and Columbia, or launching satellite festivals in Chile, Mexico, Argentina, and more recently Spain.
