Featuring performances and unique collaborations from Mute artists past, present and future alongside talks, workshops, screenings and installations, the occasion will celebrate Mute's unique and influential work as a label.Mute was founded by Daniel Miller in 1978, and since then has signed and developed some of the world's most influential recording artists - including Depeche Mode, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Goldfrapp, Erasure, Moby and Richard Hawley - and become home to a crop of emerging talent and recent signings such as Josh T. Pearson and Liars.

Whilst maintaining a firmly eclectic roster, from the earliest days of The Normal, Fad Gadget and DAF through to the techno era with artists such as Plastikman / Richie Hawtin and Speedy J, and to the present day with hybrid electronic artists such as Yeasayer and S.C.U.M, the label has always been a champion of electronic music.

Mute also looks after a catalogue of seminal electronic artists such as Can, Throbbing Gristle, Cabaret Voltaire and Kraftwerk.

Short Circuit pays tribute to the key Pioneers of Electronic Music, recent festivals have hosted performances from artists such as the BBC Radiophonic Workshop, Holger Czukay, John Foxx, Jeff Mills and Gavin Bryars.
