Taking place within the plush environs of Bloomsbury's Horse Hospital, the night promises to be the first in a series of events that dare to deviate from the predictable, bringing the cutting edge of European multidisciplinary talent to the heart of London. Alpha-Ville's ethos is ambitious but focused: to celebrating the relationship between digital media, visual art, short film and music. To achieve this we have teamed up with leading short film label FUTURE SHORTS who will be presenting a selection of short films on the night. In addition, Alpha-Ville has worked hard to assemble a truly international line-up which promises to be outstanding. Highlights include sonic innovator ARBOL, one of Spain's most prolific electronic producers and regular collaborator with such prestigious names as Bigas Luna and Leo Obstbaum, he is no stranger to both London's ICA and Barcelona's Sonar festival. Also from the field of electronic music is classically trained Athens-based Eleni Adamopoulou who will be showcasing her noise collage project MANEKINEKOD. A pioneering exploration of foundsound and melody, the project has released work on Berlin's Monika Enterprise and recently garnered acclaim for her improvisational performance at WorldTronics Festival. From the field of digital art are the Barcelona-based VJ collective TESTPHASE, while Parisian GRAPHSET, who has worked with the likes of kraut disco sorts Zombie Zombie, will be bringing his experimental take on print design and VJ-ing to the festival. Finally we present visual artist and designer MACHINES DESIRANTES, aka Madrid's Jose Salas whose live video sets at Benacassim and collabs with Berliners Jeans Team render him an essential addition to the line-up.
