JOHN HURT, CBE (1940 - 2017)
| Saturday 28th January 2017
 
The legendary British actor and voice over artist passed way yesterday, 27th January 2017, age 77.  Famous for his roles in classic films including Alien; The Elephant; 1984 and more recently, the Harry Potter series which are just a few of his memorable performances that spanned six decades in no less than one hundred and twenty films. In 2013 he played the role of "The War Doctor" in the television science fiction series Doctor Who that introduced him to a new generation of fans and was also the narrator throughout Art of Noise's 1999 album, The Seduction Of Claude Debussy.
 
Our thoughts and sympathies go out to his family and friends at this very sad time.

CLASSIC ALBUM SUNDAYS PRESENT AN EVENING WITH THE ART OF NOISE
Friday 11th September 2015
 
Who’s Afraid Of The Art Of Noise? was originally released in 1984 and acted as the perfect illustration of the changing dynamics of not only how music sounded, but also how it was to be created in the future. The lines had become increasingly blurred between the artist and producer, not only their roles within the studio, but also their roles within the finished product. George Martin was referred to as the fifth Beatle for his influence on their sound, Brian Eno would develop the idea of the ‘studio as a compositional tool’ and Trevor Horn would go on to define the sound of the 80’s through his work with acts such as Frankie Goes to Hollywood and Seal.

The Art Of Noise developed the idea of a ‘group without faces’, the ‘band’ was created by engineer/producer Gary Langan and programmer J. J. Jeczalik, along with arranger Anne Dudley, producer Trevor Horn, music journalist Paul Morley and was without a traditional frontman. The sound was created from a pallet of samples, field recordings and synthesis, blurring the lines between the recognisable genres of new wave, rock, pop and dance music.

Join us for this special one off event which will feature Trevor Horn, Anne Dudley and Paul Morley all in attendance and talking openly about their memories of The Art Of Noise and their classic debut. The album will be replayed in full on our world-class audiophile Classic Album Sundays hi-fi and the replay will be followed by an opportunity for the guests to ask the band the questions they have always wanted to ask.

This will be a very intimate event and seating will be VERY limited.

Wednesday 21st October from 7 to 10 pm

The Club at Café Royal, 68 Regent Street, London W1B 0AB

Tickets: £100 (there is also a limited allotment of complimentary tickets for Café Royal Club Members but they must sign up in advance)
