Noise of Art and Heavenly Social presents:
White Noise (Live)
Noise of Art continues the launch of its tenth year with a rare performance by the legendary White Noise.
Formed as a pioneering electronic band in 1968 by David Vorhaus, an American musician living in London, he soon recruited BBC Radiophonic Workshop’s Delia Derbyshire and Brian Hodgson to the group and set about recording ‘Electric Storm’ - considered by many to be the UK’s first proper electronic LP.
At the time it was greeted with incomprehension, but has since become recognised as a classic of pioneering electronics, and a staple of discerning record collections the world over.
Coming from a period when electronic musicians often had to first make instruments to play the sounds they wanted to create, Vorhaus has a long career as an inventor of new instruments and, more recently, software.
With the band currently consisting of Vorhaus and Mike Painter, this is a rare chance to see the legendary band playing their own inventions live.
The live gig will be followed by NOA’s customary knees up at the Social, with DJs Ben Osborne, Heavenly Jukebox and David Agrella joining up with the Heavenly Social and celebrating Noise of Art’s 10th year of letting their hair down at the ever popular central London venue (the first NOA gig at the Social was in April 2006).
5 Little Portland Street.
