After three consecutive editions of Alpha-ville Festival, its producers announce today the official start of a new strategic phase for the organisation. Although the annual festival has been cancelled this year due to shortage of funding, the organisation will still be going ahead with a series of individual events.

Alpha-ville LIVE is the first carefully crafted event and it is dedicated to exploring the relationship between electronic music, visual performances and other cultural practices. Taking place on Saturday 6th October at the iconic Hackney Empire, the unique programme will feature 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.

The second event will take place at the Hackney Picturehouse on the same day, featuring the latest in moving image including animation, video art, experimental, interactive, documentary and music video.

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.
