Splice Festival forms the UK branch of Creative Europe’s AV Node Network, a large scale project which partners 13 art and technology festivals across some of Europe’s biggest cities to promote and support the work of emerging audio visual artists.

At its core the festival’s programme will explore the overlapping fields 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.

Our educational programme features a range of workshops, talks and panel discussions.

Beginners Guide to AV – Leon Trimble – SOLD OUT

Connecting software and hardware to make and perform music and video can be a complicated
business. This workshop will take the trial and error out of the process.


We will use protocols including MIDI and OSC to communicate between applications. At the end of the session you will have the foundations of an AV show which you can build upon and develop into a performance.

Participants will need to bring their own laptop (Linux, MacOS or Windows) with the trial versions of some software pre-installed: VDMX, Resolume, Puredata, Ableton Live and Traktor will all be used in this workshop.

Participants should also bring some content, please download a few freebie video loop packs if you don’t have some already, the same goes for Audio. There are plenty of places to find media: archive.org is a good place to start.

This workshop will be led by Leon Trimble:
