Alpha-ville is a London-based non-profit organisation that showcases the dynamic intersection between digital arts, technology, and society. In 2012, Alpha-ville was the first London organisation appointed to join ICAS, a worldwide network of independent non-profit organisations dedicated to advancing sound, music and related arts. Members of this network include FutureEverything (Manchester), CTM (Berlin), Unsound (Krakow/NY), TodaysArt (The Hague), Cimatics (Brussels), Nemo (Paris) and Mutek (Montreal). Through this network Alpha-ville participates in international debates, develops projects and commissions new works.
We had the pleasure of working with the Alpha-ville festival last year, and on October 6th we will be in attendance again for the first event of their 2012 programme. Hackney Empire will host a unique programme featuring the London premiere of the collaboration between Murcof & AntiVJ, alongside an intimate live solo by The Field and a full audiovisual experience by Raster-Noton’s label co-owner Byetone.
Alpha-ville’s second event will be taking place the same day in Hackney Picurehouse, which will be showing a selection of cross-genre moving image works from fields including animation, experimental video, documentary, video art and CGI
