Noise of Art
Spring Festival Weekend

Following the first announcement of this year’s Noise of Art activities during the Ether Festival at the Southbank on Sunday 19th April, we can now announce two more nights of Noise of Art collaborations. In the build up to the main event, NoA team up with They Came From the Stars I saw Them, two awesome Italian outfits, the Hell Yeah! and Kinky Afro crews, Slipped Disco and London Loves for two new parties not to be missed.

Plus visuals and art

Part one of Noise of Art’s weekend of Italian Stallions sees the awesome Hell Yeah! Records bring their leading lights over along with some seriously messed up basslines. Already heroes at home, Blatta and Inesha are threatening to follow in Crookers footsteps. Look out Paris, the Italians are coming. Blatta and Inesha are joined by fellow Italian and Hell Yeah! head honcho and Italo rave master Marco Gallerani. Meanwhile home grown psychedelic indie dance kids They Came From the Stars I Saw Them will be adding their stunning live performance to the proceedings and whipping the dancefloor into a stage diving froth pit. No doubt they’ll be playing their fanstastic Moon Song single. In true Noise of Art style there’ll be splendid visuals and Noise of Art founder Ben Osborne (recently described by Time Out as “very ace”) will be keeping everybody dancing in eclectic Balearic style between the gaps.
Slipped Disco is on NME Radio on Sky 0184, Virgin Media 975, Freesat 727 and /shows7

Tickets on sale. More acts and dates to be announced.

Following last July's sell out week of events, the NOISE OF ART returns to turn the Southbank centre into a disco dancing space ship - as Ether sees the debut of Noise of Art's latest project, DEEP SPACE DISCO, a music and art clubbing event. Noise of Art will launch Deep Space Disco at the Ether Festival on Sunday 19 April. Featuring an international line-up of Musicians, DJs, performance artists and visuals teams, amongst those crafting cosmic grooves to re-edited Soviet-era space films and fantastically costumed performers, will be top New York DFA act The Juan Maclean. The night will also feature the UK debut of DJ T (founder of Berlin's ultra cool Get Physical Music) and Thomas Schumacher's new collaboration project. In another first, new Faroe Islands discovery, Orca, will play live. Further debuts are to be announced.
The event will include visual artists manipulating Soviet era space films from the 1960s, set to space disco grooves by an International line-up, featuring: DJ T vs THOMAS SCHUMACHER (Get Physical, Berlin) doing their first UK show as a duo; THE JUAN MACLEAN (New York, DFA) performing their London debut as a full live band; plus the widely tipped LES HOMMES DU TRAIN (Totolo, Paris), DJ sets from Ben Osborne (Noise of Art founder) and DJ Sonny (Mighty Rumble, Singapore) and performance art by the IMMACULATE EXTREMISTS', art by OVERLAP, FUNKCUTTER, PUNKVERT, PRICKIMAGE and more to be announced.

CHATEAU FLIGHT, the electronic duo made up of seminal Parisian producers and DJs I:Cube and Gilb’r, will perform their soundtrack to Les Vampires LIVE in the QEH.
The night also sees the UK debut show of ORCA and BUDAM, two of the leading lights of the music revolution emanating from the Faroe Isles - both soon to be the subject of a feature in Observer Music Magazine.

Orca have taken the Noise of Art principle to a logical conclusion by creating their own instruments from disused farm machinery. Their music is a powerful, abstract electronica that escapes easy comparisons. Budam combines song writing with story-telling and performance in ways that transform and merge different artistic and musical traditions. Almost out of nowhere, a new musical scene has sprung upon us, with Faroe islands bands being snapped up by labels like Sunday Best etc. They have just finished working with Yann Tiersen (composer of music for Amelie) and are looking like they will do for the Faroes what Bjork’s generation did for Iceland.
Noise of Art will be using film from 1911 and rarely seen footage of early soviet space training. This is part of an ongoing project that is unearthing unknown gems from the BFI’s National Archive and showing films that would otherwise be collecting dust to a new audience.

More acts are to be announced soon, but please snap up your tickets before they disappear from this earth...

Noise of Art celebrates the convergence of music and visual art brought about by the digital age and over the past three years has worked with established electronic musicians and artists as well as introduced new talent. Debut UK performances include bringing many of the Ed Banger roster from Paris to the UK as well as new artists such as Nathan Fake, while also debuting and commissioning new material from established acts such as Bomb The Bass, Booka Shade, MANDY, Coldcut, Lemon Jelly, Sebastian Tellier, Laurent Garnier and Chateau Flight.

During this time Noise of Art events have been held at such esteemed and diverse venues as Tate Britain, The Key, De La Warr Pavilion, the National Film Theatre, London, Bar Music Hall, The Social, Latitude Festival, Institute of Contemporary Art, Bongo club Edinburgh, Caves Edinburgh, Institute Francais, Komedia Brighton, 333, Glasgow College of Art and most recently in January this year the BFI Southbank with the first of its ‘Nite Versions’ series focussing on EA Dupont’s 1920 film of London club nightlife ‘Piccadilly’.

More acts are to be announced soon, but please snap up your tickets before they disappear from this earth...
