Thursday 16 July Film & Music Tent, Latitude, Henham Park, Suffolk.
Marking ten years since Noise of Art launched in partnership with the Tate and programmed the first three nights at Latitude’s Music and Film arena, Noise of Art founder DJ Ben Osborne returns to play the opening night of Latitude 2015.
The night, part of Latitude’s ten year celebrations, has been commissioned by the Tate and will seethe Music and Film arena transformed into a clash between a real festival and a virtual club night (created using Mindecraft).
Animated visuals, created by Minecraft hackers and inspired by the Tate’s surrealist artworks, will include contributions from the crowd, creating an alternative Latitude’s dreamscape.
Festival goers are invited to contribute at the start of the evening to help create visions in Minecraft, before getting down to electronic beats, as Latitude’s virtual nightclub doppelganger emerges on the screens.
DJs Beatrice Dillon (Trilogy Tapes, NTS Radio) and Toby Kidd (Are We Here? Thin Man Records) will be responding to the music of game culture to start the evening, while DJ Ben Osborne (Noise of Art) will kick the party off against the backdrop of looping Minecraft dreamscapes from 11pm onwards.
The night is part of Tate Worlds, a collaboration between Tate, thecommonpeople.tv and BlockWorks.
