New Year’s Eve: Noise of Art’s Psychedelic Curiosity

Noise of Art’s New Year’s Eve event at Sketch, with Ben Osborne, Luca Santucci, The People Pile, Overlap, Your Mum, Walkabout/ Prick Image, Kevin Pearce, Peter Hepworth, Fred’s House, The Medicine Shop, Louise Golbey and special guests to be announced.

New Year’s Eve at Sketch, London
31st December 2011 – 1st December 2012

Sketch, 9 Conduit Street, London, W1S 2XG

The Noise of Art entry list for this event is now full. If we’re not seeing you on the 31st we hope to see you very soon at our next events in 2012.

Noise of Art returns to the stunning party space at Sketch for NYE 2012, with a new immersive club event featuring music, art, film, performance, dance, surround projections and occurrences of curiosity.

On the 45th anniversary of the UK’s Psychedelic movement, Noise of Art’s new show is inspired by the 19th Century imagery of the late Sixties (think Blake’s iconic cover art and inner sleeve cut out moustaches). The immersive club event imagines that Sergeant Pepper, Pink Floyd and The Avengers were the result of two universes colliding in 1967; throwing people from a parallel steam punk world into the Carnaby Street scene of swinging London (which happens to be two minutes walk from the venue).

The resulting psychedelic Victoriana features DJs, coal-fired flower power, contemporary dancers, and folk singers, curiosities of nature and, visiting the capital for the very first time, the drawing room disco that is a Benefit For Mr Kite, and 360 degree magic lanterns of psychedelic imagery.

Musical acts will begin with Sixties folktronics, and rise to steam-powered cosmic house, psyched-out-disco and coal-fired techno.

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.
