Matthew Herbert, Jamie Lidell, Andy Stott, and John Talabot among the initial line-up for Mutek 2013 (tix on sale)
The 14th edition of Mutek, Montreal's annual "international festival of digital creativ and electronic music," will happen May 29 - June 2. The festival has released the initial line-up of performers, including Matthew Herbert, Andy Stott, Jamie Lidell, John Talabot, Martyn, Onra and more. Mutek Passports (good for the whole fest) and Weekend Passes (good for 5/31 - 6/2) are on sale now.
Matthew Herbert will have a very busy 2013. In addition to a new album, End of Silence, which was constructed from just one sound, he's got a 130 track compilation titled Herbert Complete which collects his house-oriented productions. That digital-only comp will be out in March and his new album a month later. He's also working with the England's Royal Opera House to create a work based on Faust that will premiere in 2014.
