We are officially launching the call for project proposals for MUTEK’s 21st edition, taking place in Montréal, August 25 to 30, 2020. Artists from Québec and Canada exploring new aesthetic avenues in digital creation and electronic music are invited to submit their projects.
Intent on continuing the gender parity and inclusiveness initiatives since 2018 with the return of Amplify and Keychange projects in 2020, this call also specifically encourages submissions from women, female-identifying and non-binary artists, as well as those from indigenous and other cultural groups.
Please note that this call applies ONLY to Canadians at home and abroad, but also welcomes submissions from foreign artists residing in Canada.
The kinds of work we are especially interested in are:
Live, original and predominantly electronic music performances
Live audiovisual performances featuring innovative use of digital imagery and sound
Installations (kinetic, robotics, interactive or digital) for a gallery space, or integration to the festival’s various venues
Performances or installations created with AIs
Projection works (mapping or video installations)
Immersive or XR projects (virtual or augmented reality)
Any projects that push boundaries and challenge conventions in the digital creation sphere
MUTEK is dedicated to presenting live performances; DJ mixes will not be considered.
We strongly encourage applicants to accompany their submissions with audio and video documentation of their projects.
The submission deadline for all MUTEK 2020 proposals is January 19, 2020.
Due to the historical volume of submissions, artists will only be contacted if they are being considered to perform at the festival. We would like to thank all candidates in advance for their interest!
