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.
