Beyond Music + Arts was a one-day symposium aimed at reporting on ground-breaking projects challenging forms and conventions in music and art through the use of digital technologies. Throughout the day, speakers from the worlds of art, technology and music shared their explorations of the collision between sound, image and code. They also debated on how these new practices are transforming the way we create, present and experience art in the digital age.

On 17 January, Alpha-ville EXCHANGE took over the fourth floor of London’s Rich Mix.
