Edition 2000

The first edition of MUTEK was launched by Alain Mongeau, as part of his mandate as Director of New Media Programming at the Ex-Centris complex. Already functioning as Artistic Director for Montreal’s International Festival of New Cinema and New Media (FCMM), MUTEK is conceived originally as a complimentary platform to FCMM, designed to explore the intersection between sound, music and new media. With a home base at the Ex-Centris complex, MUTEK 2000 also held showcases in smaller venues like Café Campus and Laika. The first line-up featured 34 artists as well as label showcases by Mille Plateaux, ~scape, Raster-Noton, and Caipirihna, and approximately 2000 people attended.
