Okay, mayhem may be a bit melodramatic - especially at 63 BPM. Regardless, it is safe to say that the 2009 MUTEK festival is looking quite impressive. While the entire Vague Terrain camp won't be in Montreal next week, we will be represented by our frequent collaborator Corina MacDonald and myself. In addition to the many great events and panels associated with the festival we'd like to plug a party that our friends at the excellent Create Digital Music and Create Digital Motion are co-presenting along with the Warper crew - this team of promoters will be hosting a "special unofficial pre-MUTEK party" on Tuesday. The event will run from the mid-afternoon until the wee hours of the morning and feature a variety of workshops (think open music tools) and performances. If you are a Montreal resident, or will be in town a bit early, cruise on over to Create Digital Music for more info.
As for the festival-proper, twitter-enabled folks can tune into @vagueterrain for semi-regular updates on the proceedings. See you in Montreal!
