    To be fair, didn't John Cage see himself as anti-music?

    Maybe he did, I don't think posterity agrees really.

    Xenakis was very much influenced by mathematics;

    I'm listening to "Troorkh" (his trombone concerto) at the moment for the first and probably last time, and I have to say it's very much an acquired taste :) Somewhat reminiscent of Pink Floyd's Atom Heart Mother suite, which preceded it by about 21 years;

    Alot of later Xenakis owes much to Varèse e.g. Integrales from 1925. Varèse really was the proto-noise prophet because he pre-dates electronic music although he was more interested in sonic art rather than noise for noise sake.

    The real noise prophits were the futurists. Luigi Russolo and all. Easily forgotten as there isn't much in the way of recordings.

    xenon Blah blah blah

    I near shat myself listening to some noise outfit I forget the name of, one night. I was a bit stoned and listening on headphones in bed. A tune came on, which to my discombobulated mind sounded like some psychopath had broken into the flats and was beating a primal rithmic prelude to slautghter upon the metal stair rods. It took me a couple of minutes to work out it was coming from my headphones.

    I think I downloaded it off Epitonic.com. Used to be a great website.

    I was a bit meh about noise until I was round a mate's nogged off my nut after an epic house party and a friend played a noise mix he'd done. It was so intense it felt well transcendental. Here it is:

    The feedback at the end of My Father My King by Mogwai makes my body almost convulse with pleasure.
    Does that count?

    There is also a point in Ain't No Home For You Here by The Whitestripes, feedback again that makes all my hairs stand up.

    And there is a noise in Milk and Honey by Beck that sounds like a pinball machine that is pretty much my favourite noise in the whole world :)

    Noise is not a young person's thing. It is punk rock for older people in fact.

    Very brave - hope it survives. I need to make sure to pop in there.

    That's a very nice mix.

    I'm off to see Otomo Yoshihide tonight - don't know whether he'll be doing noise stuff or jazz stuff (or both) but should be fun

    I wouldn't ever describe that mix as 'nice' in any capacity!

    To make you feel better, here is one of my favourite drum noises ever - fortunately it's at 0.06 so you don't have to listen to the whole track:

    I don't think you have at all! Noise has been a part of classical and rock music for ages, it's just that some people like to extract those particular bits and remove the rest. (In the same way that breakbeats on funk records became the blueprint for other music...).

    I suppose it depends on your definition of 'nice'. Abrasive and potentially irritating noises, white noise, dissonance, screaming and total lack of melody or even rhythm are not generally considered to be nice by most people

    A lot of people who make it and go to the gigs are what I would call young - 20s/30s.
