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.

Pictures From Noise of Art® at Latitude Festival

by on Aug.14, 2013, under Events

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.

Noise of Art’s psychedelic Latitude

by on Jul.03, 2012, under Events

Noise of Art returns to Latitude on Friday 13 July to present a three day Psychedelic Curiosity.

The happening starts with a psychedelic nightclub in the film and music tent on Friday, followed by three days of events on a purpose built stage that pops out of a 1965 VW camper van. The van is a vintage hippy festival vehicle that’s been converted into a solar powered stage.PJF_9913

The line-up includes international bands, up and coming acts and film festival debuts.

On the 45th anniversary of the Psychedelic movement, Noise of Art’s show re-imagines why Victorian design and fashion was a main ingredient in the Sixties Psychedelic movement.

It imagines that two universes collided in 1967. One was a steampunk world. The other was the Carnaby Street of Sixties London. Which is why, amongst other things, Peter Blake’s cover for Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is based on a Victorian circus.NoA Projection simulation
