Day 2 of the Avant_MUTEK Chicago series showcases a collaborative multimedia performance by locals FRANKIE VEGA & SEVRON, as well as a different, dance-oriented side musical side of Montreal’s STEPHEN BEAUPRÉ, who performs his own audiovisual project, GEMMIFORM, the night before as part the Avant_MUTEK Chicago opening showcase at the Chicago Cultural Center.
More than 10 years of active participation on the Montreal scene has converted Stephen Beaupré into an uncontestable dj/artist in the world of Canadian music. Attracting attention with his Crackhaus project, for which he collaborates with his friend and fellow artist Deadbeat, Steve has managed to gain recognition as a solo artist with his EP Dirty Lipreading on the upstart Montreal label Musique Risquée, launched by Akufen and Vincent Lemieux. 2006 brought the release of his first solo album, the masterful Foe Destroyer, released on both Musique Risquée and MUTEK_REC. Stephen has been busy releasing a series of remixes and EPs ever since, on labels such as Circus Company and Wagon Repair.
A vinyl enthusiast with a true passion for igniting a dance floor, Chicago’s Sevron has spent the better part of fifteen years obsessively building an enviable record collection. His enthusiasm for new and unique electronic sounds has always been matched by his love of classic dance music. As a cofounding member of the Chicago-based promotional group No Affiliation, Sevron has been a force behind many memorable underground and club events over the last decade.
