About this project

MUTEK 2012: Experience the festival from anywhere!

A multi-media portable platform designed to deliver the festival experience to fans around the world

Project Description:

MUTEK decided to build a VIRTUAL FESTIVAL STUDIO, a live window onto the festival experience that will allow us an opportunity to dig deeper into the performances, the artists, and the ideas that make MUTEK a distinctive 5-day experience. Headquartered on the festival grounds and transmitted to the world via MUTEK TV and MUTEK FM - our website’s television and radio networks – the virtual festival is an ambitious proposal that seeks to present live events in a new and exciting fashion.

The VIRTUAL FESTIVAL STUDIO (VFS) is designed to add numerous new dimensions to the MUTEK online experience. Using the VFS, we can live broadcast a selection of our major performances, as both video and audio streams. Alongside its live performances, MUTEK could share many of the compelling onstage artist interviews, workshops, and panel discussions that make the daytime scheduling so thought-provoking to all who attend.  We will also go beyond the core festival programming and set up a MUTEK studio, where we can invite artists to deliver exclusive performances, DJ mixes, or talks. Along with live broadcasting all these sessions, we will also record them for posterity, and share them with our large international following throughout the year.

The concept is a simple and effective way to share MUTEK with the world, but it is also costly and requires much expertise.  We need your help to make this dream of ours a reality.  With your generous financial contributions, MUTEK will pay for the core technical infrastructure required to broadcast live events from concert halls and studio, and secure the production crew required to translate this five-day event into a groundbreaking virtual experience.

So please join us by contributing whatever you can!  We hope our list of rewards will make the donation worth your while!

FESTIVAL DESCRIPTION

MUTEK is an international festival for digital creativity and electronic music taking place in Montreal every year since the year 2000.

MUTEK 2012: Vivez le festival où que vous soyez!

MUTEK souhaite partager l’expérience du festival avec ses fans à travers le monde, et met en place VIRTUAL FESTIVAL STUDIO, une fenêtre virtuelle sur sa 13ème édition.

Le VFS permettra de vivre en direct 5 journées particulières qu'offre l'expérience MUTEK, de retrouver les performances du festival et de découvrir plus en profondeur les artistes de l'édition 2012.

Situé en plein cœur du festival, VFS sera aussi retransmis sur MUTEK.TV et MUTEK.FM – nos plateformes TV et radio en ligne – et présentera en direct et de façon innovatrice divers rendez-vous de la 13ème édition.

Le VFS est conçu pour apporter de nouvelles dimensions et enrichir l’expérience en ligne de MUTEK.

Que fera donc le VFS ?

À travers le VFS, MUTEK retransmettra en direct une sélection de ses principales performances, en streaming audio et vidéo.

En plus des performances, MUTEK pourra partager des interviews d’artistes, ateliers et panels.

Cela permettra également d’étendre la programmation en mettant en place un studio MUTEK, où nous pourrions inviter des artistes à présenter des performances, des mixes et des interviews exclusives, qui seront enregistrés en vue d'être partagés avec notre public international, et cela, tout au long de l'année.

Pourquoi avons nous besoin de votre aide?

Le concept est simple et se présente comme un moyen efficace pour partager l'expérience  MUTEK à travers le  monde, mais il est aussi coûteux et nécessite de l'expertise.

Nous avons besoin de vous pour réaliser ce formidable projet !

Avec votre généreux soutient, MUTEK pourra financer l’infrastructure technique nécessaire à la retransmission en direct des événements depuis les salles de concert et le studio, tout en assurant la mise en place de l’équipe de production qui traduira les 5 jours du festival en une expérience virtuelle exceptionnelle !

Aidez-nous à la hauteur de ce que vous pouvez !

En retour de votre participation, MUTEK propose une liste de récompenses, qui, nous l'espérons, vous séduira.
