Green is Sexy came about when three friends realized that
exchanging tips on ways to make an impact on the environment
was becoming daily conversation. They decided that, with a bit
of research and some help from their friends, they could spread
the word to all sorts of people and really make a difference.
green is sexy is about tiny changes, big impact.
Because being informed is sexy. Being responsible is sexy.
Being eco-friendly is sexy. Making a difference is sexy.
Electronic Explorations, in the company of Rob Booth as we travel
through electronic music’s hottest property, a deviously crafted
patchwork of carefully sewn rhythms, sonic contortions and
delicate melodies. Dubstep, minimal electronica, techno and
advanced soundscapes. Producers who rarely see the light of day,
too busy in their own homes, making some of the most arresting,
forward thinking and intelligent music.
If you like your music experimental, uncompromising, hand crafted
and eerie, mathematical and heavy on the bass then look no further.

The first Buffalo Exchange opened in 1974 in Tucson, Arizona
by Kerstin and Spencer Block. To our knowledge, this was the
very first store that bought, sold, traded and took clothing items
and accessories on consignment. Kerstin, being Swedish, thought
the word 'Buffalo' was very American. And since the store was
going to be an 'Exchange,' the store's name was born.
Buffalo Exchange is a sustainable company that works to protect the
environment by reusing and recycling clothing. The EPA estimates
12.4 million tons of textiles were generated in 2008, or 5 percent of
total U.S. municipal solid waste. Nearly half of the 2.5 billion pounds
of postconsumer textile waste prevented from entering the solid waste
stream is recycled as secondhand clothing, according to the Council
for Textile Recycling.

The collective name for a diverse range of activities, techniques and
motivations for dance, performance, or movement inspired by the
Ankoku-Butoh movement. It typically involves playful and grotesque
imagery, taboo topics, extreme or absurd environments, and is
traditionally performed in white, body makeup with slow,
hypercontrolled motion, with or without an audience. But there is no
set style, and it may be purely conceptual with no movement at all.
Its origins have been attributed to Japanese dance legends Tatsumi
Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno.

MUTEK is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the
dissemination and development of digital creativity in sound, music,
and audio visual art. Its mandate is to provide a platform for the
most original and visionary artists currently working in their fields,
with the intent of providing an outlet of initiation and discovery for the
audiences we seek to develop.
MUTEK’s principal activity is the annual presentation of its namesake
festival, which has taken place in Montreal since 2000. Since its first
edition, the MUTEK festival has distinguished itself as an international
rendezvous for original and avantgarde programming. In terms of
content, the festival’s range strives to be diverse, with interests in both
the experimental and the playful sides of digital creativity. MUTEK’s
programming intends to create a sonic space that can support
innovation in new electronic music and digital art. This is a world of
constant evolution and incessant refinement – the “MU” in MUTEK
refers consciously to the notion of “mutation”.
