Framlingham Town Council and Noise of Art, the national music and arts organisation, have announced a special music & light show in Framlingham’s famous Castle on Friday 4 November..

The new environmentally friendly firework night will include music, lights and art projections in a creative, fun and inclusive event taking place within the grounds of the castle, which is referenced in Ed Sheeran’s ‘Castle On The Hill’,

The show is conceived by Noise of Art's Ben Osborne, who will also DJ and perform new music on the night. His Noise of Art shows have included commissions for Sir Paul McCartney and The Beatles and Latitude Festival and have been performed at Queen Elizabeth Hall,  Tate Britain, National Portrait Gallery, Village Underground, BFI Southbank in London and venues around the world. Described as a ‘polymath’, he collaborates with international stars and regularly DJs clubs, galleries, and major festivals across the UK and Europe. He’s also a writer, creative producer and artist. Noise of Art events have been described as “an actual Cathedral of Sound” by The Guardian.

Amongst the musical guests is Loula Yorke, winner of the coveted Daphne Oram Award, whose performances will feature the debut of her new Flouresence LP, which will be mixed by Ben Osborne and set to visuals by Jim Horsfield. Yorke’s improvised hardware-only live sets include abstract sonic collages and powerful beat workouts. Radio play includes BBC Radio 3, BBC Radio 1 and BBC1XTRA, and she's described as “one of the most interesting voices in analog electronics”. Yorke is a Sound Generator artist for 2022, supported by Sound UK. During 2022 she’s played Colchester Arts Centre, Spill Festival, Cafe Oto, London, and the Sonic Arts Research Centre, Belfast.

Prominent visual artists appearing include Your Mum, a long term collaborator with Noise of Art. Her work has appeared at leading clubs and festivals across the UK, including Koko, Latitude, Big Chill, and The Roundhouse, and at festivals across Europe. Her work with Noise of Art has created visuals for events with National Portrait Gallery, Booka Shade, Liverpool International Music Festival  and Chateau Perché festival in France.

Jim Horsfield has toured the globe, including projecting onto Sydney Opera House, and worked extensively with acts such as Beardyman, Jon Hopkins, Future Loop Foundation and Global Communication. He’s also VJ’d for Phil Hartnol (Orbital), Tom Middleton and Gilles Peterson and made documentaries for Fatboy Slim, Madness and Pete Tong. His latest show mapped bespoke visuals onto Islington’s prestigous Union Chapel in London.

PrickImage is a leading practitioner in mobile club visuals. A long term collaborator with Nosie of Art, his Walkabout Projections were the first of their kind and featured  in The Chemical Brothers acclaimed film ‘Don't Think’. He’s done shows for John Paul Gaultier, the Barbican, Adidas, and Vivien Westwood. Recent light installations include Love Light Norwich, and Margate Turner Contemporary. He often runs visuals for Defected Records and Glitterbox at Printworks, London, and The Warehouse Project, Manchester. He created audio reactive visuals for the Melanie C (Spice Girls) tour and album launch.

Janice Oliver has worked with bands since she was 16, as a singer and co-writer. Being interested in experimental electronic music, she moved into Vjing (visual projection) and other visual media methods to perform her work. She also works with young people, using media projects to support them creatively and technically. She produces experimental digital media projections, as well as video documentary community projects and radio production and presentation.

With an early evening show at 5:30pm, geared towards families, and a later one starting at 8pm, tickets have been kept at an accessible price for a high quality event. There  will be interactive event projections and under 18s are being invited to take part in an art competition, creating images for projection on the castle walls.

Ben Osborne says: "Noise of Art has been putting on music and art events around London since the early 2000's and since then we've done shows in amazing places, including French chateaus. But projecting inside Framlingham Castle walls is one of the most exciting opportunities yet. It's intended that this year is the start of an ongoing collaboration with the Town Council and local community to build local participation in future music, light art and immersive events. Plans are already under way for a series of creative workshops next year and we're looking forward to working with established local artists and audio visual novices at next year's events."

The new cross platform music and art event replaces the traditional bonfire and fireworks events on November 5th, with a new environmentally friendly, sustainable, and low CO2 emissions event - aiming to reduce significantly the noise and pollution from fireworks and bonfires.

The event has been made possible with funding from Art Council England National Lottery Project Grants and Framlingham Town Council.

This is an outdoor autumn event, so it’s a good idea to come prepared for cold and possibly wet weather.
