Their new show is based on Booka Shade’s critically praised fifth album, Eve – itself recorded using vintage synthesisers.

“Stratospherically successful production duo… making immaculate, tactile house music.” (NME)

November – electronic music centenary continued

by on Nov.05, 2013, under Events

London electronic music and art collective, Noise of Art, continues its celebration of 100 years of electronic music with a weekend of festival events in Manchester and London on 15 and 16 November, as well as a DJ sets in the Hayward Gallery Bar on Friday 22 November from 9pm-1am.

The inaugural Louder Than Words cross platform music and word festival launches in Manchester on Friday 15 November. The event will see  Noise of Art’s Ben Osborne, spin a club based set inspired by the on-going celebration of a century of electronic music. Based on the 100th anniversary of the publication of Luigi Russolo’s ‘Manifesto For An Art of Noises’, the DJ set will use excerpts from the original pamphlet and recordings of Russolo’s own proto-type synthesisers. Hosted by John Robb, the festival features panels, discussions and such icons as Jah Wobble, Alan McGee, Hugh Cornwall (The Stanglers), Tim Burgess (The Charlatans) and Wilko Johnson. The panel on club music features Simon Morrison, Jonty Skrufff, Luke Bainbridge, Martin James and Ben Osborne.

On Saturday 16 November Noise of Art will be joining independent music promoters The Local to play the closing club night of their annual North London music festival, The End.

Held in venues around London’s Crouch End on 15-16 November the festival honours both Crouch End’s considerable pool of local music talent and international touring acts.

In keeping with this ethos, Noise of Art has invited Crouch End’s very own electronic pioneer, Si Begg, to spin alongside DJ Ben Osborne.

Long running dance magazine Mixmag recently summed up Si Begg’s contribution to electronic music: “Si Begg has been a pioneer and genre-mangler, having rocked the techno world, turned the breaks scene inside out, pre-empted ‘future garage’ by a decade, torn-up dubstep and ambient and been a vital part of Tony Thorpe’s Studio Rockers setup.
