Sneak peek: MUTEK
While you're booking those plane tickets for Barcelona, don't forget to make your reservations for the MUTEK festival in Montreal, June 1-5. The full lineup has yet to be revealed, but the preview I finegled when hacking into director Alain Mongeau's Blackberry — I was just looking for Ricardo Villalobos' phone number, I swear — is enticing enough as it is. Just a few of the highlights:
Klimek + Tim Hecker
Pan/Tone aka Sid LeRock
"Autre artiste à confirmer," as they say, so check MUTEK's site in the next week or so for a proper announcement. But the taster alone has me smackin' my lips, and that's not to say anything of the unconfirmed acts. See you north of the border!
