Slipped Disco presents Ben Osborne (Noise of Art’s Tenth Anniversary year launch knees-up)
The Big Chill Bar,
Dray Walk (off Brick Lane),
London, E1 6QL
Having launched into their tenth year by turning a council housing block in Brixton into a day-glo night club on New Year’s Eve, Ben Osborne returns to his long running residency at the Big Chill Bar to kick -start Noise of Art’s tenth anniversary year (2006-2016) with an intimate party, at his long running Slipped Disco night.
Noise of Art events involve collaborations between musicians and a variety of different art forms. This years’ NYE event at Brixton Bloc involved a collaboration with street artists Neonita and Solo One, who turned disused council apartments into a neon post- apocalyptic world. Other 2015 projects saw Ben Osborne and CAVALCANTI re-purpose a textile factory to make music for an installation at London Design Week, as well as collaborations with the Tate at Latitude Festival and an exploration of reverb and architecture with Andrew Weatherall at Convergence Festival.
Other recent projects have involved film, a troop of 40 contemporary dancers, performances by TV and film actors, visual artists, sculptors and other artistic disciplines.
Tonight’s DJ set is a much more down-to-earth and intimate affair, but expect announcements about forthcoming anniversary events to appear via www.noiseofart.org… and also a bit of a party.
Noise of Art’s association with Big Chill goes back to early shows at the Big Chill festival, as well as shows at Big Chill House and Bar – and a series of formative club nights at, the then sister venue, Cargo, before Noise of Art was launched.
For those with time to kill, here’s a bit more about Noise of Art’s first ten year (Tenth Anniversary 2006-2016)…
