Well, lately we have a lot of live streams and audiovisual material to chose to watch directly from home, but if you ask us to recommend something related, we can only think about next weekend, because MUTEK San Francisco has announced a virtual festival called NEXUS Experience, set to go down May 23rd and 24th featuring Live AV performers on two stages, Digital galleries, Workshops, Film Screenings and more.
This comes after seeing the third edition of MUTEK.SF been postponed due to California\’s extended stay-at-home order, so the festival has decided to present a virtual festival with a donation-based ticketing system.
Proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to artists, and the festival will be presented in a digital space developed by the team behind Currents.FM. The digital venue will attempt to create a \”sense of gathering and group friendship by creating and sharing experiences in private rooms.\”
First Wave of Artists for NEXUS Experience has been announced:
AAAA (MX) / Auscultation + Jason Worden (US) / Drew McDowall + Florence To (UK/US + UK/DE) / Eichef (MX/US) / Force Placement (US) / Francesco Tristano presents: Pianorig Sessions (LU/ES) / Infinite Jess (US) / Jasmine Infiniti + Cozy (US) / Jensen Interceptor b2b Kris Baha + MULTIPLE MAN (Visuals) (AU/DE + AU/US) / K-HAND (US) / Marpi Studio (PL/US) / minimal violence (CA/DE) / Patricia + Josephine Ravitz (US) / Pelada (CA) / RP Boo (US) / Selim X (US) / Solar b2b Mozhgan (US) / Synthestruct (US) / The Creatrix (US) / Very Much Romance (BG+US) / YobKiss + Pankow Visual Artists (NL/US + RU/US)…
