White Noise – Live
Ben Osborne – resident DJ

The Barge House, 46a De Beauvoir Crescent, London, N1 5RY, London

3:30pm – 11pm

Our next paddle through the cultural shockwaves still rippling from the era of psychedelia draws inspiration from seminal London counter culture night club, the Arts Lab.

A short-lived experimental club night, Arts Lab was opened in 1967 by Jim Haynes, a leading figure in London’s counter-culture.

Amongst Arts Lab regulars was a young David Vorhaus, who formed pioneering electronic band White Noise in 1968, with his partner Deliah Derbyshire – herself a prominent member the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Deliah was also responsible for the Dr Who theme tune.

White Noise’s first LP, An Electric Storm, is widely regarded as the UK’s first proper electronic LP. David and White Noise will be making a rare live appearance at Smart Lab.

Other regulars at the original Arts Lab included John Lennon, Yoko Ono and David Bowie – who performed at Arts Lab in December 1968 and later set-up his own Beckenham Arts Lab in honour of the central London version.

Smart Lab is inviting people from every genre of the arts and technology to come and get creative. The original Arts Lab invited people to pay what they wanted to. For the new version the music in the bar and on the canal side is free, but to see the additional acts in the live room the audience pays per performance. The acts set the fee for each performance themselves.

Smart Lab is held on the banks of the Regent’s Canal in Dalston at the Barge House, home to the popular Sunday brunch – Breakfast in Bread.

DJ Ben Osborne

Bar Concrete
Southbank Centre
Belvedere Road
London SE1 8XX
Free Entry
8pm – 1am

Long running electronic music night, Slipped Disco, slides back into its residency at the Southbank Centre at the Hayward Gallery’s bar.

Featuring Slipped Disco’s open ended music policy of all things dancefloor, from proto disco, to techno templates, trap, cosmic house, indie dance and neo hip-hop.

Time Out said of January’s Slipped Disco at Concrete: “Obscenely fun electronic oddness. This pleases us very much indeed, primarily because of the anything-goes music policy that sees anything from classic techno, punk-funk, galactic house, deep down and dirty disco and other dancefloor dynamite do the rounds. Welcome back, Slipped Disco, and let the fun and weirdness begin again.” (Time Out January 2013)

“Whether penning features, currating Noise of Art projects or simply playing out, Ben Osborne likes to keep busy. Slipped Disco, his own night, has played a part in rescuing nights for everyone in need of somewhere to let their hair down.” Flavourpill.

Noise of Art presents a night of film, music, art, DJs and psychedelic curiosity over three floors and featuring The Beatles film MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR, now fully restored with a remixed soundtrack – finally shown on the big screen for the first time, 45 years after it was made.

First broadcast by the BBC in 1967, The Beatles’ Magical Mystery Tour’ was a product of its era while also being years ahead of its time. The film anticipated techniques that were to become industry standards , such as ad lib film scripts, mocumentaries and surreal Television comedy.

The night is inspired by the evolution of psychedelic music, from folk, through rock and soul music, to acid house and contemporary club music.

With more acts being announced, the line up sees Justin Robertson, creator of the ‘Art of Acid’ compilation, play an acid house set, electronic music pioneers Si Begg and Fred Deakin play new audio visual sets, Ashley Beedle, spin a psychedelic funk set, and Leftside Wobble and, Noise of Art founder, Ben Osborne, mix cosmic dancefloor fillers. Fiona Bevan and Laura J Martin, two of the UKs fast rising female singer songwriters, will form part of the folk connection.

They join Noise of Art regulars, The People Pile, Overlap, Your Mum, Prick Image and more to be announced, who’ll complete the immersive cinema and club experience.

Rounding off a week of events that’s seen the Beatles’ cult film, Magical Mystery Tour, shown on the big screen for the very first time, Apple Films Ltd (the film making arm of the Beatles’ company) is allowing Noise of Art to screen the film as part of Noise of Art’s cross platform clubbing event.

This is the last screening in a week of events celebrating Magical Mystery Tour in the run-up to its release on Blue Ray and DVD. It follows a gala event at the BFI Southbank on Oct 2nd, where Noise of Art will create the after show for an invited audience.

The event continues Noise of Art’s celebration of the 45th anniversary of psychedelia, which started with a sell out New Year’s eve event in London and saw three days of activity at Latitude Festival.

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
