For its sixth edition, Mal au Pixel program weaves open dialogs on digital creation, through different public meetings : WJ-SPOT, Altlabs and Artisans Électroniques (Digital Craftmen). We gather together many role-player on the independant digital art scene, may it be immaterial through shared Internet experiences, or physical with the open-source solutions as cultivated in many independant labs.
We will further explore bio and social issues, by hosting the House Of Natural Fiber (Indonesia) in a residency, for the Intelligent Bacteria project (IB:SC), applying open source to microbiology and alcohol distillation.
With the exhibition and meeting series Utopies Monétaires Internationales (International Monetary Utopias), we will unveil several researches on alternative currencies, from artistic experiences to actual prototypes.

DRIFT, another main spot of the festival, invites four creative « turntablists » for crossed performances : eRikm, Arnaud Rivière, Martin Tétreault, DJ Sniff. The performance will be carved onto an experimental record, being capable of random play.

In the Transmissions performances event, the artists play with different radio wavelenghts and signals. The DIY Music concert will showcase inventor of electronic instruments, such as Casper Electronics. And with I-R-L event, the latest audivisual experiences are put to the test

And this new edition will offer the opportunity to meet up with the different Pixelache nodes and to figure out an event in 2012… to celebrate the network's 10 years.
