Mariam Rezaei’s NOISESTRA (aka CIF Turntables Project) was part of NE-Generation and funded by the Legacy Trust UK, an independent charity set up to promote a sporting and cultural legacy from the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games around the UK.
For NOISESTRA’s premiere work, Mariam Rezaei (aka DJ Etch-A-Sqratch) worked with El Roboto and Apartment House to train young people as DJs to collectively create new music and art.
Young people are the driving force behind NOISESTRA, not only creating music but individually contributing to the creation of the score of the works and collectively, naming the project, leaving a lasting legacy.
The initial NOISESTRA project lead up to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the participants gaining a rewarding and fun experience in DJing, composition and art work with a premiere performance at The Sage Gateshead during the 2012 Olympic Period.NOISESTRA PHOTOS JOHAN BERG @ EL ROBOTO LTD

About NE Generation:
NE-Generation aims to bring about a shift in the way in which children and young people and the North East’s arts and cultural sector collaborate and work together; developing a more tuned in and children and young people focused cultural sector where young people in the North East experience, participate in and generate arts and cultural activity on their own terms. The sector will become more responsive to and reflective of young people and their cultural needs and interests, ultimately playing a greater part in their lives and increasing children and young people’s self-awareness, creative opportunities for self-expression and enabling them to develop their own ideas of personal and regional identity through engagement with the arts and culture.
