About us

Noise of Art is a cross platform collective that celebrates the convergence of music and other artistic disciplines brought about by the digital age.

“When it comes to mega multimedia events, DJ Ben Osborne and his Noise of Art Collective are all over it.” (Kate Hutchinson,Time Out London)”

“The travelling festival of electronic music, visuals, and strong links with the Berlin scene… has previously appeared at The Tate, ICA, and the De La Warr Pavilion; flattering credentials indeed”
