Where: Hackney Empire
Cost: £17.50 - £35
Tickets available HERE
After three consecutive editions of Alpha-ville Festival, its producers announce that they will not run as a festival this autumn but will continue as an independent cultural platform for creativity and forward thinking through a series of events.
To mark the changes in their programme, Alpha-ville presents their first series of cutting-edge visuals on 6 October, featuring Murcof & AntiVJ, The Field and Byetone. The London premiere of this collaboration between Mexican electronic musician Murcof and Simon Geilfus of the visual collective AntiVJ.
Their audiovisual show creates an immersive experience using semi-transparent and panoramic screens. Projected microscopic particles, geometric grids and organic elements are able to mutate the surrounding environment.
Murcof’s music is founded on abstraction, glitch details and complex electronic percussion, drawing influence from minimalism, postmodernism and even baroque. AntiVJ is a visual label that focuses on the use of projected light and its influence on perception. They incorporate methods such as stereoscopy, holographic illusions and projection mapping (sculpting video content to match the geometry of the projection surface).
In addition to the events at Hackney Empire, Alpha-ville will be screening a selection of moving image works Saturday 6 October at Hackney Picturehouse (tickets available HERE).
