Produced and curated by Marc Battier, Ramuntcho Matta and Pierre Couprie in collaboration with Ina-GRM (Institut National Audiovisuel/Groupe de Recherches Musicales) and Electronic Music Foundation, organized by Valérie Paillé, New Mix took place on December 17 and 18, 2004, at the Palais de Tokyo, a major contemporary art museum located near the Trocadero in Paris. Each of the two evenings began at 6:30 and ended at 11:30, and included a vast range of electronic music and performance art.

It is now ten years that Electronic Music Foundation works for electronic music throughout the world : by the dissemination of knowledge and history, by the encouragement of creativity and exploration among the global community of electronic musicians, and by support for individual initiative in electronic invention. Dedicated in its activities and continually motivated by the idea of fostering new synergies, EMF is celebrating its ten years in special ways in different places. In France, Marc Battier, Ramuntcho Matta, and Pierre Couprie, with the support of Daniel Teruggi of l'Ina-GRM, are collaborating to create the New Mix festival. In a space within the Palais de Tokyo, highly prestigious location for contemporary art in Paris, more than twenty artists with diverse ideas, musicians, but also dancers and video artists, are coming together for two evenings to offer EMF a wide open electronic celebration.
