The MUTEK 2012 Zef & Santo 3D Projection was a visionary in its incorporation of modern music and futuristic imagery.

The ocular spectacle took place at the MUTEK festival in Montreal that is a mecca for the musical creativity with audio-visuals. The festival is known as a distinguished rendezvous for avant-garde programming. They feature experimental artists like the design duo Zef & Santo who are the creative minds behind this projection.

Set to the music of Keith Fullterton Whitman, the visualizations are hypnotic in their 8-Bit aesthetic. It has a purposely digitalized feel that is harmonized with auto-responsive glitches in the 3D canvas. "We love the mix between hi-fi and low-fi, it gives our output a more human feel," says Santo of their eclectic work.

Their piece does the MUTEK standards justice with its forward-thinking usage of space, technology and music.
