22:00 – 06:00

Facebook event

Having come of age with a historic b2b performance from messrs DJ Qu and Efdemin, Melt Music are now looking to rise up from the basement that’s served them so well. They’ll be in Dukes House, an intimate venue for this party with the mighty Dinky of Cocoon providing the vibes.

Melt was busy representing at Distortion festival in Copenhagen earlier this year, where they caught Dinky working both the crowd and a seriously bang on trend hair cut. Her rousing tech-house set, in tow with boyfriend Matthew Styles, was comfortably one of the best there, so she was an absolute shoe-in for this Christmas special.

Supporting Dinky on the night will be electronic music aficionado, Didier Allyne. This Paris-based player has serious scene credentials, having fine tuned his game with regular slots at the notorious Rex club in Paris over the past 2 decades. He also finds time to run the house label Syncrophone, together with a record store that’s played host to house music doyennes such as Carl Craig.

Also present will be Melt Music’s now infamous residents. The duo with more cool than a freezer, Monika Ross and Maura will be back and well rested after their birthday after-party shenanigans. As will Arnaud Le-Texier with his own special brand of French fancy.

So come all ye faithful and snap up your tickets! Tonight’s gonna be one to remember.

Dinky (Cocoon)
Didier Allyne (Syncrophone)

Ansel Adams: Photography from the Mountains to Sea

Until Apr 28 2013

Ansel Adams is the most popular and arguably the most influential photographer in American history. Famous for dramatic and evocative landscapes, he produced iconic and beautiful images of American nature. The forests, mountains and coastlines of the US provided a rich environment for Adams’s pioneering photography, and this exhibition brings together his most powerful and striking pictures of water in all its forms, from awe-inspiring images of epic seascapes, dramatic rapids and geysers, to crashing waterfalls, placid ponds, raging rivers and beautiful ice-locked landscapes.

Fluid, ephemeral, and unpredictable, water brought dynamic motion and feeling to his pictures. Water provided Adams with a persistent source of inspiration and opportunity for experimentation both in his art and his photographic process. Adams was a true pioneer whose influence continues to be felt to this day.

Witness over 100 original prints from the extraordinary detail of the tiniest images through to three of his ground-breaking photographic murals, each almost three meters in height.

Ansel Adams: Photography from the Mountains to the Sea is a must-see exhibition for lovers of photography. Those who know Adams will see his art from a fascinating new angle, and those new to his work will be moved by its inspirational and elemental beauty.

Family activity trail: Explore the exhibition with a free activity trail to find out more about Ansel Adams and landscape photography. Pick up a trail from one of the Museum’s information desks.
