Thursday 6 October
Free 6pm 10pm
National Maritime Museum, Romney Road, Greenwich, London SE10 9NF Free, 6-10pm.

Opening the Traders Unpacked season in the new high tech East India Gallery and new wing of the NMM, Noise of Art takes inspiration from the way Eastern sea routes have brought new cultures into London, and changed our art, music, film and clubs.
The programme sees two of London’s longest running club nights unite, as DJ Ritu, of London South Asian club Kali and BBC Radio, lines-up alongside Rita Ray, of the influential London African club, Shrine.
Singaporean act Portfolio will be playing deep house (the East India Company established its first base in Singapore), alongside the Afro -Indian singer of Dec Shoes. Japanese fronted Krautrock act Cosmic Onion Field will add live music, while Overlap unveils the new version of an evolving film-as-art portrait of Anna Mae Wong – the first Chinese film star, who made her debut in a film set in nightclubs in the 1920s in the East London docks.
Sikh beat-boxer Jason Singh, who started working with film after winning a PRS for Music Foundation Award in 2010, is creating a new collaborative work, with poet Avaes Mohammed and film maker T.J Jeffrey, specially for the night.
East London’s finest salty sea dogs, The City Sea Shanty Band, singing the odd song about bottles of rum. Contemporary dancers The People Pile will be performing a themed piece and 360 degree projectionists Your Mum and mobile movie projector Strap On will be adding their unique imagery… and more.
Noise of Art’s forthcoming London programme will run from 17 September to 14 October, including the Metiss’age Street Art Festival, supported by the Cultural Programme of the European Union.
Following recent events at Latitude, Sketch, National Portrait Gallery, Tate Britain and Spot Festival Denmark, the month of London events will include club nights, street art painting, contemporary dance, costumes, performance art, street performers and circus acts, all set around Noise of Art’s core of electronic club music.
Noise of Art is also supporting Tree For Cities and the Treeathalon, to raise awareness and funds for its work planting trees in inner city environments.
