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.

The Wicker Man Disco Inferno Brings 100 Years of Electronic Music to Latitude

by on Jul.10, 2013, under Events

Groove Armada (Tom DJ Set), Nathaniel Parker (Inspector Lynley Mysteries), Si Begg, Ben Osborne, Overlap, The People Pile, Mark Scott Wood and Art.

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.

Eccentronic Research Council ft Maxine Peake launch 100 years electronic music celebrations

Noise of Art’s 100 years of an Art of Noises Launch Party with:

Eccentronic Research Council ft Maxine Peake – LIVE

Deadstock 33s (Justin Robertson)
Jim Stanton (The Cock)
Scottee (Anti Social)

and more to be announced
8.30pm – 4am Village Underground, 54 Holywell Lane,  Shoreditch, London EC2A 3PQ

Get Tickets will be on sale HERE soon and are available HERE now…

Noise of Art starts its celebration of 100 years of electronic music with a rare as hens teeth chance to see the Eccentronic Research Council, featuring Maxine Peake, live

Marking a century since Luigi Russolo, the Italian futurist, published his ‘Manifesto for An Art of Noises’ (1913) and designed what many hold to be the first synthesiser, the celebrations will see a series of music and cross platform art events taking place over the next year. The Launch party references the role Sheffield played in electronic music and the era defining music that came out of London’s clubs at the turn of the 21st Century.

Headlining the show is the Eccentronic Research Council, featuring film, stage and TV star Maxine Peak on vocals. Amongst her many roles, Peake has starred in Shameless, Dinner Ladies, Clubbed and Silk, and is about to headline the 2013 Manchester International Festival.

This is the first time Eccentronic Research Council has played in London (having turned down every previous offer) and will be the only chance to see the cross-platform band perform their acclaimed ‘1612 Underture’ in the Capital. If you miss this you have really missed out.

The core of Eccentronic Research Council, apart from Maxine, are Dean Hohner and Adrian Flanagan, two vintage synth enthusiasts who are themselves part of Sheffield’s electronic and leftfield heritage, having been members of band’s such as I Monster, Kings Have long Arms, The Chanteuse & The Crippled Claw and All Seeing Eye. They count Sheffield legends such as DJ Parrot, Jarvis Cocker and Phil Oakey in their circle.

Keeping the party going all night long, will be a core collection of London DJs from the most legendary London nightclubs at the start of the 21st Century.

Pioneering what was at times called electroclash, electro house, indie dance, new rave, disco punk, the Hoxton sound, Berlin sound and, simply, electro (but all the while trying to wriggle out of having a name at all), the clubs rebelled against the over-produced dance music of the late Nineties and looked back to early synthesiser music for inspiration; something they have in common with ECR’s love of vintage analogue sounds – plenty of which will be on hand tonight.

The clubs, such as Nag Nag Nag , The Cock, Trash and Anti Social, all returned to electronic music’s dirtier sounding roots, but came back with different takes.

Representing these clubs tonight will be Fil Ok, resident DJ and founder of the legendary Nag Nag Nag. Jim Stanton, DJ and creator of The Cock, one of the clubs, alongside Trash, responsible for the sound in London, and Scottee, the DJ and performance artist who, along with Buster, was behind Anti Social, the maddest and baddest new rave club of them all.

Justin Robertson, legendary DJ, Bugged Out resident and original Hacienda Acid houser, will be wearing his Deadstock 33’s hat, a new nom de plume that sees him delve back to the heyday of New York anti-disco in a way that only he could. Check out his sublime new LP on Munk’s seminal imprint, Gomma, to see what we mean.

Meanwhile the DJ’s DJ, Italian stallion Severino, who alongside Jim Stanton was a founder member of Horse Meat Disco (the night that brought disco back), will be flying the flag for his synthesiser inventing and electronic music fathering compatriot, Luigi Russolo.

DJ and Noise of Art founder Ben Osborne will be intervening at various points, incorporating some of the electronic sounds created by Luigi Russolo into his contemporary dancefloor set. And there’s more to be announced…

Details of the next event to be announced shortly.

Following a day of music and art events at Battersea Park, Noise of Art and Trees For Cities continue the Metiss’age activities with a night of electronic music, surround visuals, costumed contemporary dancers and immersive clubbing.

The evening sees pioneering deep house maestro, Peter Kruder, making a rare London appearance. Kruder rose to prominence as half of Kruder and Dorfmiester in the mid Nineties, and has continually contributed to electronic music’s evolution through deep house and broken beat. His DJ sets are both imaginative and floor shaking.

Kruder is joined by Si Begg, a similarly influential and restless musical soul, and Ashley Beedle, whose never ending projects and pseudonyms (including Black Science Orchestra, Dark Star, Delta House of Funk and X Press 2) have seen him continually re-define house, neo-soul, reggae, acid jazz and psychedelic funk. New act Dec shoes are a vinyl and vocal double act who’ve been raising the temperature at festivals and low ceilinged clubs throughout the summer. Producer and DJ, Portfolio, cut his teeth as resident DJ at Singapore’s celebrated Zouk club. Having recently moved to London, his new sound has become darker and deeper and has already been picked-up for compilations by Steve Lawler, amongst others. David Jenkinson has been busy exporting his C21 club around the world, but tonight returns to his home turf, while Trees For Cities regular Rupert the Brewer will be bringing his collection of smouldering funk to the table. Noise of Art founder Ben Osborne will deliver a trademark round of roof and floor bumping music.

Completing the immersive club experience there will be surround visuals, performance art and spectacular contemporary dance pieces provided by Noise of Art’s regular contributors Your Mum, Overlap and The People Pile, plus an alien anti-fashion show by artist Mark Scott Wood.

Money raised from the event will go to Trees for Cities to plant Metiss’age trees in inner cities.

Metiss’age is supported by the cultural programme of the European Union.

Noise of Art’s Attack The Block – Party at Latitude

by on Jun.25, 2011, under Events

aluna_latitude_2010

Noise of Art will launch its new show, Attack The Block – Party, at this year’s Latitude Frestival, 14-17 July 2011, with a mega line up of electronic music, including.

Xpress 2 // Si Begg //  Lighthouses // AutoKratz // Dec Shoes // Ben Osborne // Overlap // Prick Image // The People Pile // Mark Scott Wood // visuals// performance artists and more

Noise of Art will continue its evolving steam punk sci-fi journey, UFO, at Latitude with ‘Attack The Block – Party’, a new chapter loosley inspired by Joe Cornish’s recently released film and Suffolk’s UFO Rendlesham incident.

Connecting the Seventies, an era of classic sci-fi imagery and New York’s seminal disco Block Parties – with today’s club scene, ‘Attack The Block – Party’ features a disco-tech sound track from some of the most revered pioneers in electronic music, alongside some of the newest arrivals.

Visual contributions come from hot club and up-and-coming street and gallery artists, while a troupe of contemporary dancers and performances artists complete the sensory immersion.

X-Press 2 are best known for their 2002 hit UK single, ‘Lazy’. Comprising of DJs Rocky and Diesel (aka Problem Kids/ Ballistic Brothers). Their first single, “Say What,” peaked at number 32 in the U.K. chart in October 1993. Further club hits were followed in 2002 with the top 10 deep house hit single “Lazy”, featuring Talking Heads’ David Byrne. Their third album, featuring a number of yet to be announced cool collaborations, is due to be released on Skint later this summer.

Si Begg is a highly original producer and inspiration to both the dub step/ London bass and new disco scenes. He’s also recorded music for films, television and advertisements and sound design for television channels, including the BBC, Channel 4 and MTV.

Autokratz were first spotted by French label Kitsuné. Based in London, AutoKratz made their LP debut in 2009 with Animal. They regularly feature on the annual series of Kitsuné Maison compilations, starting with the inclusion of “Pardon Garçon” on the fifth volume in 2007. AutoKratz have also remixed tracks by artists such as Underworld, Fischerspooner and La Roux.

Lighthouses have been variously described as “Bloc Party meets Justice”, “Daft Punk crossed with Soulwax” “Death from Above versus Delphic”… The real lighthouse at Orford Ness, near the Latitude site, has frequently been used to explain away the strange radiation and flashing lights during the UFO sighting at Rendlesham in 1980. This has nothing to do with the Lighthouses playing our UFO event. But according to loads of predictions, they’re expected to fly.

Dec Shoes formed when the core duo collaborated to write and perform a soundtrack for Noise of Art’s show at Latitude last year. A couple of months after they were asked to play a gig at London’s Southbank Centre, followed by a serries of small club appearances. This has lead to their first festival appearances in Europe and being invited to play on top of BT Tower to celebrate the Olympics.

Surrounding the music, Noise of Art collaborators Mark Scott Wood and Friends, Prick Image, Overlap and The People Pile will immerse the audience in specially created sci fi imagery, interactive performance, solar landscapes, lunar missions, UFO landings and extraordinary creatures.

Meanwhile Noise of Art founder and DJ Ben Osborne will be joining the dots.
