London Prague and Ireland – Kalle and Everything Shook

by on Oct.16, 2018, under Events

In advance of our weekend of events marking the end of WW1 on 9-11 November in Prague, there is a little soiree tonight (Tuesday 16 October) in Central London.

The third in our series presenting up-and-coming acts at The Social sees a double-headliner with award winning Czech act Kalle being joined by all-girl Irish electronic three-piece Everything Shook and host DJ Ben Osborne.

Kalle are Veronika Buriankova and David Zeman from the Czech Republic. They released their debut LP, Live From The Room, in 2014. Recorded at home on cassette, it won the Andél Award for Alt.Music in 2015. Their sophomore LP, Saffron Hills, was released at the end of last year.

Everything Shook consists of Robyn Bromfield, Jessica Kennedy and Áine Stapleton who recently stunned the audience at Ireland’s Electric Picnic festival. One of The Irish Times’ Best Irish Acts of 2014. The trio have played large festivals, music venues and art spaces throughout Ireland and New York. This is their debut at The Social, London. ‘Everything Shook…recall Fever Ray and Ladytron at a melancholy 4am disco with David Lynch DJing’ (Buzz.ie).

Host DJ Ben Osborne is the founder of Noise of Art. The Guardian describes Noise of Art as an “actual cathedral of sound” and Time Out says his sets span “techno, funk, galactic house, deep down and dirty disco and other dancefloor dynamite”

Convergence Festival presents Noise of Art’s comfortably spun

by on Mar.03, 2016, under Events

Comfortably spun – an audio visual installation By Ben Osborne (Noise of Art) and CAVALCANTI
Noon – until 7pm
Saturday 12 to Sunday 20 March 2015
With LIVE CLUB night on Friday 18 March 7pm-2am
Red Gallery, 1-3 Rivington St, London EC2A 3DT

CAVALCANTI_BENOSBORNE_COLLECTINGSOUND

For this collaboration, between textile designer CAVALCANTI and electronic music and art outfit Noise of Art, Ben Osborne uses a textile factory in Portugal as an instrument, creating electronic music out of the sounds of looms and tufting machines making CAVALCANTI’s specifically designed rugs. The design of the textiles are then also translated into digital signals and patched through synths, to create other-worldly melodies and baselines.

‘Comfortably Spun’ turns the weaving and tufting techniques used in the textile industry into music.

The sounds and rhythms of the looms and tufting tools have been recorded and arranged into contemporary electronic tracks, using techniques from early electronic ‘tape” music. To complete the creative loop, the designs of the rugs have been digitally mapped into synthesiser patterns, adding melody to the rhythms of the factory.

On Friday 18 March the AV installation will be joined by live sets from White Noise – the band behind the UK’s first electronic LP in 1969, live electronic improvisors, The Deben Collectove and DJ sets from Horton Jupiter and Ben Osborne.

“When it comes to mega multimedia events, Ben Osborne and his collective, Noise of Art, are all over it.” (Time Out London).

Having just had one of his tracks, Come Correct, selected by Erol Alkan for his I Love Techno LP, and about to drop his new LP on Addictech Records (his first for five years) – as well as completing his first film score (released next spring) – Si Begg is back on a roll right now.
