The ever-expanding MUTEK empire takes its first trip to Argentina this year, with MUTEK Buenos Aires. Though still a much smaller operation than its North American counterpart, the festival features a notable lineup of artists bringing their technology-driven music to the stage, much of it based in the realms of minimalism and techno.

Some figures arriving in the South American city include Thomas Brinkmann, Cabanne, Damián Schwartz, Original Hamster, Clandestine, and others. The post-industrial complex in the Ciudad Dultural Konex hosts this edition of the worldwide festival. Expect lots of bleeping electronics, trippy audiovisuals, new technology, and skinny white guys smoking European cigarettes in dark corners.

MUTEK Buenos Aires takes place December 13 – 17, 2006.
