ELEKTRA, a high-calibre Montreal-based cultural initiative founded in 1999, presents artists and works of art that align the latest electronic music and visual creations derived from new technologies (animation, installation and robotics).
Elektra unites creative media like music, video, cinema, design, gaming and audio or interactive installation with the latest digital technologies. Artists from all disciplines – composition, performance, dance, visual arts, etc. – all with a common interest in artistic applications of new technologies, uniting visual and sound.
Elektra not only welcomes artists from all over the world, the festival also features local talents, helping make Montreal the North American meeting place for digital arts.
In 2014, Elektra celebrates its 15th anniversary from May 27 to June 1, joining forces with the MUTEK festival on this occasion. Together, they create EM15, a major event that presents cutting edge local and international expressions of digital creativity at Montréal’s Musée d’art contemporain, and other iconic venues throughout the city.
