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.

by on Aug.05, 2013, under Events

Thank you to everyone who came along to the first three of Noise of Art’s 100 Years of Electronic music celebrations at Latitude, British Film Institute Southbank and Village Underground. And special thanks to Nathaniel Parker, Si Begg, Coldcut, Mental Overdrive, Frost, Slow and all the performers and artists taking part in the 100 year project so far. Nat Parker was a revelation on vocals. There’s much more to come. Our gratitude also to David Pinner, author of Ritual, the book that inspired Wicker Man, who selected passages for the show.

More “100 Years of Electronic Music” shows to come soon, but in the meantime there’s some info on this month’s sister events here. August dates include Buffalo (3 August), The Angel (10), ECD (19) Big Chill Bar (23) Bar Concrete at Hayward Gallery (30)).

Groove Armada (Tom DJ Set), Nathaniel Parker (Inspector Lynley Mysteries), Si Begg, Ben Osborne, Overlap, The People Pile, Mark Scott Wood and Art.

Following last year’s celebration of psychedelic music at Latitude, Noise of Art returns to celebrate the ongoing connection between the post psychedelic period and electronic music.

On the 40th anniversary of the cult film, Wicker Man, Noise of Art debuts its electronic music, film and art show inspired by the 1973 British cinema classic.

The event combines nightclub, cinema, theatre and contemporary dance, including a DJ set by Groove Armada, accompanied by book readings and spoken word performance from stage and screen star Nathaniel Parker.

Parker’s leading roles include staring in the TV series Inspector Lynley Mysteries and Merlin. He has just finished a West End run, appearing alongside Dame Helen Mirren in the Award winning stage play, The Audience. He will be reading passages from David Pinner’s Ritual, the book that inspired the film, which have been specially selected for this show by the author.

Cult London club royalty DJ Tom Findlay, of Groove Armada, will make a rare festival appearance, alongside DJ Ben Osborne, founder of Noise of Art, playing dance beats to accompany the spoken word performance. The show features Noise of Art’s renown cinema-graphic visual projections, live electronic music (including electronic violin) and a newly created contemporary dance piece.

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.

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

by on Dec.04, 2011, under Events

psych_grl
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.

 

“When it comes to mega multimedia events, Ben Osborne and his collective, Noise of Art, are all over it.” Time Out“… plenty of great music and top visuals for your dollar.” CMU
“Unique venues… and quality electronica” iDJ
“The idea’s brilliant” FACT
“… bound to free the crowd from any… torpor.” The Guardian
“This gets a very big Londonist thumbs up.” The Londonist

dancers_latitude_noiseofart
Following a day of music and art events at Battersea Park, Noise of Art and Trees For Cities continue the Metiss’age activities with a night of electronic music, surround visuals, costumed contemporary dancers and immersive clubbing.

The evening sees pioneering deep house maestro, Peter Kruder, making a rare London appearance. Kruder rose to prominence as half of Kruder and Dorfmiester in the mid Nineties, and has continually contributed to electronic music’s evolution through deep house and broken beat. His DJ sets are both imaginative and floor shaking.

Kruder is joined by Si Begg, a similarly influential and restless musical soul, and Ashley Beedle, whose never ending projects and pseudonyms (including Black Science Orchestra, Dark Star, Delta House of Funk and X Press 2) have seen him continually re-define house, neo-soul, reggae, acid jazz and psychedelic funk. New act Dec shoes are a vinyl and vocal double act who’ve been raising the temperature at festivals and low ceilinged clubs throughout the summer. Producer and DJ, Portfolio, cut his teeth as resident DJ at Singapore’s celebrated Zouk club. Having recently moved to London, his new sound has become darker and deeper and has already been picked-up for compilations by Steve Lawler, amongst others. David Jenkinson has been busy exporting his C21 club around the world, but tonight returns to his home turf, while Trees For Cities regular Rupert the Brewer will be bringing his collection of smouldering funk to the table. Noise of Art founder Ben Osborne will deliver a trademark round of roof and floor bumping music.

Completing the immersive club experience there will be surround visuals, performance art and spectacular contemporary dance pieces provided by Noise of Art’s regular contributors Your Mum, Overlap and The People Pile, plus an alien anti-fashion show by artist Mark Scott Wood.

Money raised from the event will go to Trees for Cities to plant Metiss’age trees in inner cities.

Metiss’age is supported by the cultural programme of the European Union.
