In August, London came to Montreal’s MUTEK festival in an outdoor/indoor program of music and audio-visual performances. Residents from Somerset House Studios curated one of their signature Nocturnal City events, while other discursive activities led by Sound Diplomacy investigated issues relevant to music cities such as London and Montréal. Another highlight was the 6 month alt.barbican exchange with UK artists Dries DepoorterHenry Driver, Jasmine Johnson, Ling Tan and Magz Hall, who work at the intersection of art and technology and were asked to respond to the theme of ‘the subversion of reality’.
