RE:PLAY
w/ special guests:
FRED DEAKIN (LEMON JELLY) and resident DJ BEN OSBORNE

BEDROOM BAR, 62 RIVINGTON ST, London EC2A 3AY www.noiseofart.org

9-3am £5 adv / £7 on the door

Fred Deakin has crossed boundaries from the start. A classically trained musician, he was a pioneer of dance music in London, where he grew up, and Edinburgh – where he lived for a decade. While in Scotland he started his artistic career as part of the Airside collective and ran several club nights.

But it was with old friend Nick Franglen, a studio programmer, who worked with Primal Scream, Bjork and The Spice Girls, that he began recording under name Lemon Jelly.

Between 1998 and 2000 they released three EPS on their own label, Impotent Fury – also the name of their seminal Brick Lane club night.

After signing to XL, they released the EPs as an LP ‘Lemonjelly.ky’, before moving onto their second album, ‘Lost Horizons’, which was released in 2002, and nominated for the 2003 Mercury Prize and Brit Award.

The last LP from Lemon Jelly, ’64-’95, featured samples drawn from the years between those two dates and came out in 2005. The band were to announce they were taking a break in 2008, but Fred continued working on his side projects, in 2006 writing electronic music for silent films and DJing at the first Noise of Art events at The National Film Theatre and Tate Britain. He released his neo-Balearic album, The Triptych, in 2007.

Most recently Fred debuted an interactive art installation for La Gaîté Lyrique in Paris in June 2012 and released the debut album from his new musical project Frank Eddie in the winter of 2012.

Fred’s career has covered everything from hip hop to house to downbeat to leftfield film tracks. What period he will re-play at RE:Play is anyone’s guess.

Resident DJ and long standing London DJ, Ben Osborne, will also be on hand with a platter of freshly cut tracks and a trademark roof bumping mix to keep spotters and dancers on their toes into the wee hours.

“Great concept, with consistently great guests too” (Time Out).

First broadcast by the BBC in 1967, The Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour’ was a product of its era while also being years ahead of its time. The film anticipated techniques that were to become industry standards , such as ad lib film scripts, mocumentaries and surreal Television comedy.

The night is inspired by the evolution of psychedelic music, from folk, through rock and soul music, to acid house and contemporary club music.

With more acts being announced, the line up sees Justin Robertson, creator of the ‘Art of Acid’ compilation, play an acid house set, electronic music pioneers Si Begg and Fred Deakin play new audio visual sets, Ashley Beedle, spin a psychedelic funk set, and Leftside Wobble and, Noise of Art founder, Ben Osborne, mix cosmic dancefloor fillers. Fiona Bevan and Laura J Martin, two of the UKs fast rising female singer songwriters, will form part of the folk connection.

They join Noise of Art regulars, The People Pile, Overlap, Your Mum, Prick Image and more to be announced, who’ll complete the immersive cinema and club experience.

Rounding off a week of events that’s seen the Beatles’ cult film, Magical Mystery Tour, shown on the big screen for the very first time, Apple Films Ltd (the film making arm of the Beatles’ company) is allowing Noise of Art to screen the film as part of Noise of Art’s cross platform clubbing event.

This is the last screening in a week of events celebrating Magical Mystery Tour in the run-up to its release on Blue Ray and DVD. It follows a gala event at the BFI Southbank on Oct 2nd, where Noise of Art will create the after show for an invited audience.

The event continues Noise of Art’s celebration of the 45th anniversary of psychedelia, which started with a sell out New Year’s eve event in London and saw three days of activity at Latitude Festival.

kindertransport_bfi0001 

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.
