Animated visuals, created by Minecraft hackers and inspired by the Tate’s surrealist artworks, will include contributions from the crowd, creating  an alternative Latitude’s dreamscape.

Festival goers are invited to contribute at the start of the evening to help create visions in Minecraft, before getting down to electronic beats, as Latitude’s virtual nightclub doppelganger emerges on the screens.

human_maypole_dancer_noise_of_art_2013The first pictures from Noise of Art® at Latitude festival have been posted on Noise of Art’s facebook page (view by clicking here)

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.

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.

The Art Hunt forms a key part of Noise of Art’s immersive club show UFO: Rendlesham Incident, with a club show on the opening Friday night of Latitude (July 16th) and events throughout the weekend.

The theme of these events is inspired by a real incident that occurred in a Suffolk forest in the winter of 1980. Thirty years ago a hapless alien cruise ship landed in Rendlesham Forest next to a US Air Force Base. This was a mistake. The accidental tourist ship was supposed to be landing on the Mountain of Embarrassing Dreams. But the captain, having un-opposable hoofs, entered the wrong data into the ship’s sat nav, so they landed near Woodbridge instead.

During the kerfuffle of getting away from the naturally curious US Air Force, priceless artifacts belonging to the alien tourists were scattered across the forests, towns and fields of East Anglia. Lying lost for 30 years (or a long weekend in alien time), the aliens have now returned to find the lost treasures.

The Rendelsham Forest incident was reported to the MOD by Lt. Cl. Charles l Holt, the deputy commander of the US Air Force base.

Full details of the events are available through Noise of Art’s Daily Newspaper, distributed free at the UFO Disco and on the festival site. The Art Hunt is curated by Suffolk born artist, Mark Scott-Wood.
