Electronic innovations in art, technology and music collide at Minitek, a festival opening for the first time in New York in mid-September. The music roster boasts Richie Hawtin along with a number of lesser known acts who carry the punch of abstract innovation in their work. The technology component of the festival includes installations such as Vallis & Hochenbaum’s ‘Roots’, which is nearly impossible to explain without seeing. Minitek is bound to have things that make you smile and say “sweet” around every corner. Check out the website in the days leading up to the September 12th opening to find out the venue, which remains a mystery thus far.
