London-based electronic composer, producer and remixer making powerfully emotive music that consistently crosses genres, ranging from solo acoustic piano to explosive, bass-heavy electro. A long-term collaborator of Brian Eno, his career has remained unpredictable, taking in collaborations with Wayne MacGregor, King Creosote and David Holmes; remixes for such varied artists as Agoria, Wild Beasts, Nosaj Thing, James Yorkston and Four Tet; and film scores for directors including Peter Jackson and Gareth Edwards. His hyper-energetic live show has been seen at some of the world’s most iconic venues, clubs, festivals and concert halls.
Jon Hopkins has just been nominated for the 2011 Mercury Music Prize for Diamond Mine, a collaborative album with Fence Records founder King Creosote.
For Alpha-ville 2011, Jon will delight us with a very special AV show with visual artist Dan Tombs
