Noise of Art Starts Week of Events on 13 March with electronic legends White Noise and Z, live and panel discussion
Noise of Art launches into 2015 with a week of events, starting with two events on Friday 13 March, followed by panels, live shows and club nights in and around London’s Convergence festival.
At 6pm on Friday 13 March Noise of Art is teaming up with French Music Export Office, Institute Francais, Rough Trade East and The Wire to present two celebrated pioneers of electronic music – White Noise’s David Vorhaus and Bernard Szajner, aka Z.
There’s more information about this one-off event on Rough Trade’s site here.
Straight after we’ll be heading over to The Social, where 1960s electronic legends White Noise will perform a completely new set live. We heard a bit of this last night and it’s, um, rather good. The live show will be followed by a Noise of Art vs Heavenly Social club night.

April marks 100 years since the first electronic music concert in April 1914, when Luigi Russolo played his prototype synthesisers in public for the first time. “Russolo was the first in the chain of the development of electronic music,” (Karl Bartos, former member of Kraftwerk).
Italian music mag Soundwall interviewed Noise of Art founder Ben Osborne about Luigi Russolo and 100 years of electronic music (click here to read interview).
