Superbyte 2015 in Manchester

SuperByte 2015 – a ‘Chiptune, Low-Tech & 8-Bit Arts Festival – returns to Manchester, UK this year for its fourth installment.

SuperByte has risen to prominence over the last three years as one of the most important events on the international chiptune calendar.

The festival launched in 2012 as a one-day chiptune and retro gaming event and featured performances from the likes of Henry Homesweet and Chipzel. Having grown considerably over the last three years, the main performances of the 2015 edition will take place at Manchester’s The Zoo, with other activities and fringe events being held in various venues around the city.

There’ll be retro gaming expos and competitions, art exhibitions, circuit bending stalls and workshops for making music on various old-school gaming consoles.

Call: 4th International Video Poetry Festival 2015

The yearly International Video Poetry Festival 2015 will be held for fourth time in Greece in Athens. Approximately 2000 people attended the festival last years

There will be two different zones of the festival. The first zone will include video poems, visual poems, short film poems and cinematic poetry by artists from all over the world (America, Asia, Europe, Africa). The second zone will include cross-platform collaborations of sound producers and music groups with poets and visual artists in live improvisations.

The International Video Poetry Festival 2015 attempts to create an open public space for the creative expression of all tendencies and streams of contemporary visual poetry.

It is very important to notice that this festival is a part of the counter-culture activities of Void Network and + the Institute [for Experimental Arts] and will be non-sponsored, free entrance, non commercial and non profit event. The festival will cover the costs (2000 posters, 15.000 flyers, high quality technical equipment e.t.c.) from the incomes of the bar of the festival.All the participating artists and the organizing groups will participate voluntary to the festival.

Void Network started organizing multi media poetry nights in 1990. Void Network and +the Institute [for Experimental Arts] believe that multi media Poetry Nights and Video Poetry shows can vibrate in the heart of Metropolis, bring new audiences in contact with contemporary poetry and open new creative dimensions for this ancient art. To achieve this, we respect the aspirations and the objectives of the artists, create high quality self organized exhibition areas and show rooms, we work with professional technicians and we offer meeting points and fields of expression for artists and people that tend to stand antagonistically to the mainstream culture.
