First artists MUTEK Barcelona
CLARAGUILAR (CAT/ES) / D. Tiffany (CA) / Dave Saved (IT) / EVOL (CAT/ES) / exael (US) / KMRU (KE) / MRAK (IT) / NPLGNN (IT) / Seltar (CAT/ES)
MRAK is the revolutionary irruption of Carmine Conte, half of the duo Tale Of Us, in the field of live performance. Loyal to the melodies and harmonies that have led the couple to be one of the most successful names in the international club scene, but also influenced by a year without dancing and partying, Carmine has decided to "innovate and transform", turning the first letters of his name (Karm) and giving birth to MRAK: a project that premieres worldwide at MUTEK ES+AR 2021 - Hybrid Edition, presented with the collaboration of BARTS .
The act combines futuristic lighting technologies with intense harmonies coming from analog machinery, playing with improvisation, modulations and digital sequences, inspired by the model of composer and multi-instrumentalist Vangelis. The cinematic aspect of the performance will favor the immersion of the audience in a total acoustic experience. As if inviting us to discover the truth of all the paths travelled so far as an artist, or as George Orwell would say "in the face of a deception, to tell the truth is a revolutionary act".
