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.

Free Entry. 8pm – 1am

Slipped Disco, slides back into its new residency at the Southbank Centre at the Hayward Gallery’s bar. “Obscenely fun electronic oddness. This pleases us very much indeed, primarily because of the anything-goes music policy that sees anything from classic techno, punk-funk, galactic house, deep down and dirty disco and other dancefloor dynamite do the rounds. Welcome back Slipped Disco, and let the fun and weirdness begin again.” (Time Out January 2013)

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).
