The third edition of the City Mix project is a journey to the capitals of contemporary electronic creativity in search of advanced music and visual experimental design. In the ever-expanding landscape of electronic media and mixmedial practices, some more cities seem to be able to collect, motivate and give space to productive energies combining research, experimentation and realization, redesigning the contours of a shared culture digital and networking.
This edition of City Mix also marks a new collaboration with Citypulse, which will present an exclusive selection of video works focused directly on the cities of the program. Citypulse is an international project created in Santiago de Chile designed to build a rich collection of experimental urban portraits by artists working on new media as unprecedented views of contemporary metropolises. This collection involves collaborative projects from various disciplines: from photography to music, from video to live media.
