Friday 6.30PM JaN PuLSFoRD brings a mixed media collection of artists to the Noise of Art at the National Portrait Gallery

'JaN PuLSFoRD brings a mixed media collection of artists to the Noise of Art at the National Portrait Gallery mixing music electronique with spoken word, water colours and a virtual ballet. JaN finishes her set with a melodic virtual duet between her avatar JaNa KYoMooN and Daphne Oram.

A long time explorer in the world of music and technology, Jan's pioneering spirit has found her touring the world with the Thompson Twins, playing at Madison Square Gardens with Nile Rodgers, writing/producing such icons as Cyndi Lauper, Darlene Love, Melanie and jazz great Chico Freeman. She was a beta tester for the groundbreaking internet collaborative platform 'The Rocket Network' and continues exploring virtual worlds and the iLLuSioN oF ReaLiTY

Today her creative journey weaves soundscapes from ambient music mixed with loops of world percussion and voices, a little jazz and trip hop, video and audio sampling.

JaN lives in Suffolk and performs at the NPG with the Deben Collective - a rolling group of Suffolk artists including author JoHN SauL, who Time Out described as 'one of our best short story writers'; artist CLauDia MYaTT currently illustrating a Britten/Pears project at Aldeburgh, and MeDoRa CHeVaLieR, a decorated worker for social justice in real and virtual spaces, who will be performing a virtual ballet'
