In response to the infamous night life of the East End and its many venues for socialising, Art Night is hosting its first Club Night. Handing Village Underground over to Carsten Nicolai (Alva Noto) in collaboration with Boiler Room for a night of experimental sounds from leading artists

As part of Art Night 2017 Carsten Nicolai (Alva Noto) and Boiler Room collaborate to curate a night of sonic experimentation from leading artists. A rare coming together of leading noise makers spearheaded by Nicolai, the night promises to be an all-nighter of audio visual goodness and an opportunity to see a lineup of pioneering artists back to back.

Alva Noto sets the tone of the night with the juxtaposition of ample sounds and minimal resonances, while Mira Calix, Lee Gamble, Nídia, errorsmith, Paul Purgas and rRose all have time on the decks, transforming Village Underground into a form of acousmatic experimentation, superseded with surprise.

Carsten Nicolai aka Alva Noto lives and works in Berlin. As an artist and a musician, Nicolai works intensively in the transitional area between music, art and science. With a strong adherence to reductionism he leads his sound experiments into the field of electronic music creating his own code of signs, acoustics and visual symbols. For his musical outputs he uses the pseudonym Alva Noto.

Noto says ‘Art and music always had a close connection. Many artists have become musicians and many musicians are artists at the same time. This special night is not an art night only. It is more a music night run by artists who have always been working in both fields and have never been pinned down to one specific genre.’

All tickets include a complimentary Absolut cocktail. Special thanks to Absolut and Goethe-Institut London for their support of Art Night.

Art Night is also generously sponsored by international auction house Phillips.
