MUTEK Montréal & Hinter live
MUTEK Montreal and hinter live launch a reforestation live music series on February 8th
Featuring Korea Town Acid, Ouri, and San Farafina
MUTEK is partnering with hinter live to co-present their upcoming season, recorded in National Parks across Canada, in a project that intersects Live Music and Environmentalism. Three inventive shows will premiere for free on MUTEK’s virtual platform between February and March 2022, while MUTEK and hinter live invite their audiences to participate in a fundraiser for the non-profit One Tree Planted.
In 2021, the Canadian company hinter live launched a reforestation campaign with One Tree Planted, aiming to replant 8.000 trees in British Columbia’s forests by summer of 2022 following the losses of wildfires. The project contributes to the Support Live Music Events program from FACTOR Canada, supporting the arts and culture industries after the impact of COVID-19.
MUTEK is a festival and conference pursuing digital creativity and forward-looking performances since it’s foundation in Montreal in 2000. Following their 22nd edition in August 2021, MUTEK was nominated for the Grand Prize in the Vivats awards, rewarding eco-responsible events in Québec, winning the RECYQ-QUÉBEC Responsible Waste Management award.
The next sessions will premiere:
February 8th [8PM Eastern Time Zone] featuring Korea Town Acid at Acid Point Island.
February 22nd [8PM Eastern Time Zone] featuring Ouri at Endymion Island.
March 8th [8PM Eastern Time Zone] featuring San Farafina w. Moonshine at Little Huckleberry.
The virtual event will host a chat room welcoming the artists, organizations and general public and calling for donations in real time. Audiences can join this premiere and participate in the One Tree Planted fundraiser speeding up forest recovery while providing habitat for wildlife.
“We are grateful for the support of Hinter Live, an organization passionate about making a positive impact for the environment throughout Canada. The trees we are planting will create a lasting benefit for nature, biodiversity, and habitat in British Columbia"
- Ashley Lamontagne, Forest Campaign Manager.
