BFI, Latitude, Wicker Man & forthcoming events

by on Aug.05, 2013, under Events

Following fabulously fun and innovative shows at BFI and Latitude, including Nathaniel Parker ducking out of Royal Shakespeare Company rehearsals to do live vocals, we’re jumping into the holiday season with a new Club launch by our sister outlet Slipped Disco – more details below.

Thank you to everyone who came along to the first three of Noise of Art’s 100 Years of Electronic music celebrations at Latitude, British Film Institute Southbank and Village Underground. And special thanks to Nathaniel Parker, Si Begg, Coldcut, Mental Overdrive, Frost, Slow and all the performers and artists taking part in the 100 year project so far. Nat Parker was a revelation on vocals. There’s much more to come. Our gratitude also to David Pinner, author of Ritual, the book that inspired Wicker Man, who selected passages for the show.

More “100 Years of Electronic Music” shows to come soon, but in the meantime there’s some info on this month’s sister events here. August dates include Buffalo (3 August), The Angel (10), ECD (19) Big Chill Bar (23) Bar Concrete at Hayward Gallery (30)).

Above is the first snap from our Wicker Man Disco Inferno show at Latitude 2013.

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.
