The Rest is Noise

The Rest is Noise - Paris in the 1920s

Southbank Centre's year-long festival, The Rest is Noise, celebrates the ideas and individuals that shaped 20th century music.  In February, the festival explores Paris, which exerted a pull on artists and intellectuals and became a hotbed of creativity, from which emerged Dadaism and the Surrealists, Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, Joyce's Ulysses and the salons of Gertrude Stein.

  • A screening of Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris.

  • Le jazz: Jazz pianist and composer Julian Joseph in conversation about the fascination of jazz and black music for composers such as Stravinsky, Ravel, Milhaud and Poulenc.
