Noise of Art’s electronic music and cross platform art event, Wicker Man Disco Inferno, was inspired the 1973 film (Wicker Man) and the book that inspired the film  (Ritual – click here for info).

We worked with the book’s author, David Pinner, creating a music and spoken word sound track, spoken live by Nathaniel Parker (best known for playing Inspector Lynley in the Inspector Lynley Mysteries TV series, as well as for playing Gordon Brown opposite Helen Mirren in The Audience).

Alongside this new music by Groove Armada and Ben Osborne, played by seminal electronic musician Si Begg and DJ Ben Osborne, was joined by cross platform art performances and artworks by Overlap, The People Pile, Mark Scott Wood and the Noise of Art performers – including wearable art pieces based on Luigi Russolo’s intonorumori.

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)).

Following last year’s celebration of psychedelic music at Latitude, Noise of Art returns to celebrate the ongoing connection between the post psychedelic period and electronic music.

On the 40th anniversary of the cult film, Wicker Man, Noise of Art debuts its electronic music, film and art show inspired by the 1973 British cinema classic.

The event combines nightclub, cinema, theatre and contemporary dance, including a DJ set by Groove Armada, accompanied by book readings and spoken word performance from stage and screen star Nathaniel Parker.

Parker’s leading roles include staring in the TV series Inspector Lynley Mysteries and Merlin. He has just finished a West End run, appearing alongside Dame Helen Mirren in the Award winning stage play, The Audience. He will be reading passages from David Pinner’s Ritual, the book that inspired the film, which have been specially selected for this show by the author.

Cult London club royalty DJ Tom Findlay, of Groove Armada, will make a rare festival appearance, alongside DJ Ben Osborne, founder of Noise of Art, playing dance beats to accompany the spoken word performance. The show features Noise of Art’s renown cinema-graphic visual projections, live electronic music (including electronic violin) and a newly created contemporary dance piece.
