Noise Of Art’s Electric Nights Preview
In association with Troms International Film Festival, Noise of Art is bringing electronic music back to its earliest home not the nightclub, but the cinema. This event, taking place at BFI Southbank on the 12th July, marks 100 years since Luigi Russolo began the story of electronic music by writing A Manifesto for an Art of Noises.
The event will be featuring the UK debut of a new live score to Vsevolod Pudovkins 1926 masterpiece Mother. The music has been created through a cross-border collaboration between celebrated Russian electronic musician Slow, Norwegian cosmic disco outfit Mental Overdrive and electronic artist Aggie Frost. Their live soundtrack, which will be played in the UK for the first and probably only time, was commissioned by Norways Troms International Film Festival festival earlier this year. Their re-working breathes new life and intensity into the revered film.
Pioneering electronic act Coldcut will be putting new music to films from the Russolo era, while Noise of Arts Ben Osborne will be adding music using recordings of Russolos own sounds.
