Bionic Harpist @ MUTEK

The Bionic Harpist will be performing at MUTEK 2020 in Montreal on Wednesday, September 9th. The performance represents the culmination of a monthlong residency at AVATAR, a Québec City centre for research and development of audiovisual artwork. See Alex’s MUTEK bio page here. The performance is part of the Experience 1 program in the Satosphere at the Société des artes technologiques.
