The rest is noise

Open University

The Open University has partnered with the Southbank Centre and the BBC on a new festival of music, running throughout 2013 at London's Southbank Centre venue.

The Rest Is Noise is a year-long festival that digs deep into 20th-century history to reveal the influences on the composing and making of art in general and classical music in particular. These concerts are supported by a range of talks and debates which discuss the wider historical, political and cultural contexts in which these works were composed.
