€23.50(taxes and fees included)
Five evening listening programs in an intimate setting, to absorb the original and intriguing character of delicate live performances focused on local and international artists featuring debuts and premieres of emerging talent.
Grand River (IT)
Behind Grand River hides an Italian-Dutch composer and audio designer called Aimée Portioli, who creates experimental electronic music with deep emotional tonalities and complex rhythms. At MUTEK Barcelona she will present All Above (Editions Mego, 2023), in collaboration with the Instituto Italiano di Cultura Barcelona, a Live AV show that explores the depths of orchestral sound, organic textures, electronics and synthesis in a powerful stream of compositions as delicate as they are profound, wrapped in piano, vocal explorations and enveloping pulsations
Spanish composer, cellist, singer and producer Yamila will revisit the emotional textures of Spanish folklore and the possibilities of contemporary electronica to envelop us in a ritual-moment that revisits narratives of redemption, mysticism and collective wounds. With his albums Visions (Umor Rex, 2022) and Iras Fajro (Forbidden Colours, 2019) as well as multiple collaborations with contemporary dance companies and visual artists, he will bring his haunting, evocative and emotionally transcendent sound to MUTEK for the first time thanks to Wallonie-Bruxelles Musiques.
Grey Line is a live A/V show by media art collective SPIME.IM. The performance delves into themes related to contemporary issues with raw sincerity, namely the inevitability of climate change and humanity’s impact on the earth. Reflecting on our exposure to and assimilation of today’s continuous media bombing, SPIME.IM attempts to describe the emotional place in which we are trapped and the "era of the absurd" we are living in, also named "the wrong timeline".
Noémi Büchi (CH)
Noémi Büchi is a Swiss/French composer and sound artist that creates electronic, symphonic maximalism. Her music is defined by a delicate synthesis of textural rhythms and electroacoustic- orchestral abstraction. She will be debuting at MUTEK Barcelona her album Matter, that captures the tension between growth and decay, consonance and dissonance, mirroring Büchi’s own catharsis through music.
Efe Ce Ele (CO/ES)
Colombian artist Efe Ce Ele, the artistic name of the Colombian and Argentina-based Feli Cabrera Lopez, will also present a Live AV show, which revolves around experimentation and emotionality, confronting the opposing concepts of binary culture. Her works are materialized in various formats that encompass sound art, electronic music, AV projects, transmedia performance and generative art.
