Richie Hawtin, Tom Trago, Ricardo Villalobos, and More Added to MUTEK's 15th Anniversary Festival
After revealing its initial line-up—which included Nicolass Jaar, Audion, Shackleton, Voices from the Lake, and more—and detailing its partnership with fellow Montreal digital arts festival Elektra last month, MUTEK has just announced the second wave of artists slated to performer at the Candian festival's 15th anniversary this spring. Dubbed EM15, the upcoming six-day event has added techno luminaries Richie Hawtin and Ricardo Villalobos to the bill, along with veteran Dutch producer Tom Trago (pictured above), Items & Things co-head Marc Houle, and Swedish hardware fanatic Andreas Tilliander, who will perform live under his TM404 moniker. In addition to laying down a DJ set during the festivities, Villalobos will also present a collaboration alongside Moritz Von Oswald Trio member Max Loderbauer, in which the pair will reimagine works from the ECM label's catalog as a "space-conscious improvisation."
The full line-up and ticket information for EM15—which takes place from Tuesday, May 27, through Sunday, June 1—can be found here.
