Founded in 2016, Addictive TV’s Graham Daniels and producer/manager Francoise Lamy joined forces with a group of like-minded fellow artists including Elasticeye and The Light Surgeons to create Splice – a festival focusing on live audiovisual performing arts. The festival is also the UK partner to the AV Node – a network of similar events funded by the EU’s Creative Europe programme.
Splice has been designed to encourage the open exchange of ideas and information whilst producing and showcasing performances from both emerging and established artists. At its core the festival explores the field of audio visual art and culture through a collection of live performances and projects including live cinema, AV remixing and VJing alongside other performative work that includes digital theatre, projection mapping, visual music, generative software, creative coding, experimental music and work that uses old and new technology in engaging ways. The festival also includes a range of workshops, talks, panel discussions, networking events, and kids & family section.
