Perhaps the main pure techno space in Moscow

The Mutabor club, located on the territory of the Sharikopodshipnikov Factory. It was launched in 2019 by Moscow’s main promoters and curators, from ‘ARMA’ to the ‘Rabitsa’ team. They immediately promised that it wouldn’t be limited to just raves, and they kept their word. In addition to parties featuring the best techno musicians from around the world, there are constantly experimental music festivals, theatrical productions, performances, and exhibitions here. The impressive industrial space of ‘Mutabor’ is a constant work in progress. Quite recently, a stage opened in the basement, and balconies above the main stage were arranged. In the new summer season, there will surely be many changes on the street as well. Mutabor keeps an eye on current social trends: separate waste collection has been in place here since its opening.

It’s an impressive space, far more interesting than most other places called ‘clubs’. There’s a lot of art, different zones, it’s comfortable, and the courtyard is very interesting. All events, especially the large ones, are a visual celebration comparable to the scenes at Signal, for example.

Eminent place of real music attraction

Mutobor’s opening on April 27th 2019 was was accompanied with live performances from Can-collaborator Phew, ambient/industrial pioneers Zoviet France and Ihor Tsymbrovsky. Moreover other upcoming bookings included Ricardo Villalobos, Nicolas Lutz, Sleeparchive, Regis and Ninos Du Brasil, along with Russian acts like Dasha Redkina, Vlada and Nikita Zabelin.

Moscow club promoters Rabitsa, the Volks and System 108 will throw parties at Mutabor, which will accommodate multiple stages indoors and outdoors in the summer months. During last years club hosted a lot of events, such as ARMA and Sigma Festival, ПЛОТЬ, Electrobudka, CHERTA and o lot of Monasterio events, OBERWAVE, Nasledie x катэраг, STVOL TV and PRIVATE PERSONS.

Unic soundspace and metaspace

To clarify if we consider the specific structure of the space, the main dance floor area has a pronounced reverberation, resulting in a noticeable echo.
This adds a resonant sound to the main dance floor. The second dance floor is more compact, and the sound reflection time is shorter. Due to the specific acoustics in Mutabor, experimental electronic music sounds unique on it.
Typically, the sound environment is designed based on an acoustic project. Hence this is a document that describes the calculation of sound pressure inside a room, taking into account its geometry, finishing materials, and provides recommendations for improving the sound profile in the space.
For calculations, a three-dimensional model of the room is initially used, which helps determine the best placement for acoustic systems and sound-absorbing materials. All of this is calculated using specialized software.
Acoustic engineers, using this software, identify sound reflections and decide how to address them. However, it cannot be said that the resulting acoustic representation will closely match reality, but it provides a general understanding of the sound of the space. Then comes the practical part.
Some amount of microphones are placed in various points of the room, and a loud noise source is used to capture sound measurements at different locations within the space. The obtained data is then compared to standard sound measurements.

Mutabor’s summary drawing of the premises

After completing work on the acoustic project, it becomes clear that you need to purchase a certain number of square meters of sound-absorbing panels, place them in specific locations, and adjust the sound profile in the range from 100 hertz to 20 kilohertz.
