In what's slated to be a massive year of expansions for Montreal's long-running, venerable MUTEK festival, the lauded event celebrated its first stateside edition of its international creativity in the digital arts and sound in California this past weekend. MUTEK organizers landed the perfect inaugural stateside host in San Francisco, a lively city synonymous with technology and innovation.
Thursday night, tucked inside the verdant Golden Gate Park, the California Academy of Sciences hosted MUTEK's kickoff showcase. From there through early Monday morning, curious electronica fans packed each of the festival's nine citywide venues for signature programs "A/Visions," "Nocturne" and "Play Digi Lab." Intrepid partiers capped the weekend off with "Experience," Sunday's day-long, art-and-audio rager at The Midway.
