Mutant Promise

08 Jul - 15 Aug
Online Events

Curator in residence.

Mutant Promise is a programming, producing and artist booking platform supporting the work of musicians who combine a DIY and creative learning practice with their performance and release work.

Created by former Music Hackspace director Tadeo Lopez-Sendon and producer Harry Murdoch, Mutant Promise's current programme devises artist-led online workshops and events for progressive music-making from the home.

For their second Somerset House Studios residency programme, Mutant Promise present new workshops and online events by Ana Quiroga, NSDOS, Dmitry Paranyushkin, Victor Mazon and Tokyo based collective EBM(T) feat. Atmosphère, Toiret Status and Miriam Stoney. The series covers themes including virtual listening rooms, hardware building at home, capturing un-hearable sounds and introduction courses to music software.

Check out their full online programme here with more workshops by Joanne Armitage, Jessica Ekomane, Johann Diedrick and more. 

Taking its title from Adam Harper’s ‘Evolution of Post-Internet Music’, Mutant Promise encapsulates a desire to work with artists who are restless with their medium, whose practice is to continually hack, modify, invent - mutate - the tools and instruments which they're given. The 'promise' is the certainty of the push forward that defines these tools, and how this process shapes new artistic practices in return.
