Launched in the year 2000, MUTEK was born at a time of transformational computational power—dedicating itself to the presentation of live electronic music and real-time audiovisual performance, making it one of the rare outlets in North America for such innovations. After 20 years, the festival’s future-seeking mandate has matured—and while the promise has in many ways caught up with the present—its commitment to the ongoing mutations and variations of contemporary digital creativity remain, with its eyes and ears still fixated on what comes next.
In the spirit of celebrating this milestone, the festival extends to 6 days and nights—and integrates the professional forum IMG into the architecture of the week to enrich conversations and encounters with current technologically driven practices and philosophies. Building on last year’s gender parity and diversity initiatives, the Amplify project rejoins the program.
MUTEK has built a unique model over the years that has proven seductively exportable. Tentacles stretch across 4 continents, to 6 other cities now, with each satellite adapting the festival’s template of values as a means to inspire new ways of engaging with the richness of electronic and digital artistry.
