MUTEK Edition 22

Priori & Jason Voltaire live A/V

Priori (CA) & Jason Voltaire (CA)

| | |

Armed with a deep respect for ever-shifting permutations of techno and IDM, Priori’s productions morph and shift with every release, channelling murky acid lines, trance-influenced euphoria, and spacey, organic breakbeats. Propulsive, unique dance music that pierces the veil of musical reality to open up new spaces. For the 22nd edition of the MUTEK festival, Priori will be premiering for the first time a unique live ambient set, specially created for the festival and accompanied by visuals from Jason Voltaire.

Priori (CA): one of the monikers used by Francis Latreille, crafts unique dance music that pierces the veil of musical reality and opens up new spaces. Raised in Longueuil, Quebec, Latreille stumbled into techno through an accidental Kazaa download, which led to an obsession with dance music. Forging cosmic, frenetic techno and IDM creations out of the remains of the past, his productions are euphoric, layered, and organic all at once.

Jason Voltaire (CA): Jason Voltaire is a Montréal-based interdisciplinary artist. An in-demand motion graphics designer and programmer, Voltaire has worked with artists such as Jacques Greene, Avalon Emerson and Young Galaxy. He is perhaps best known under his dance music/DJ pseudonym, Martyn Bootyspoon.
