by on Oct.10, 2013, under Events


This month Slipped Disco’s event at the Hayward Gallery takes place on the last weekend of BFI’s London Film Festival and, fittingly, it will be celebrating the launch of new magazine So Film.

The night, on Friday 18 October, will see Chris Airplays join Noise of Art’s Ben Osborne on the decks, mixing film scores into the usual blend of all things dance floor, while free copies of the magazine, fresh off the press, will be distributed to the crowd.

Meanwhile details of the next Noise of Art events in Manchester, The End Festival, Big Chill Bar and National Portrait Gallery will be announced very soon.

Noise of Art and Sound and Music launch Kindertransport, an audio-visual installation and sculpture by Ralph Koltai CBE and Ben Osborne on 15 April at the British Film Institute Southbank, London.

Inspired by the mission which rescued 10,000 mostly Jewish children from German occupied Europe in 1938 – 1940, the artwork will tour the European departure points and the UK. Amongst the children saved from death in Nazi concentration camps were important post war figures, including prominant artists, scientists, philanthropists, directors and musicians.

The sculpture is created by Ralph Koltai CBE, a celebrated set designer, artist and Kindertransport survivor. He has been credited for innovating post war British set design.

The project is conceived by Ben Osborne, a Musician, DJ and writer, who is currently participating in the cross platform New Music Plus Award scheme.

Audio visuals for the launch have been created by Fred Deakin, (musician, graphic artist and half of Mercury prize nominated band Lemon Jelly), Overlap (a duo made-up of  fine artist Michael Denton and animated image artist Anna McCrickard) and Ben Osborne.
