Good on em! There is hope after all
It is subjective of course. Most people probably don't like lashings of sub-bass, or minimal techno, or bagpipes or whatever.
True. I never envisioned that i would find listening to Japanese men screaming a pleasure
I'm just relieved there's a form of music that meets that particular prediliction of yours....
my other half makes noise music.. he is presenting a paper on it at the Linux Audio conference
they do a degree course on it at my local uni. it's the degree show this weekend as it happens, might drop in and check it out. loads of earnest young men with beards, believe it or not...
I shall be investigating then
I will also be spending a large portion of my weekend with earnest beardsmen. In sunny Bexhill On Sea, at the Editions Mego Extravaganza.
godamnit, that looks fantastic. i really fancied going to that gig chris & cosey did there last year, but bexhill on sea is fairly impractical to get to from preston.
It's harder than you'd think from London, tbf. (Getting back will be a right pain). But yeah should be excellent.
oh, missed that thread before.
It really depends on the stuff, I like the more soundscapy stuff, the plain white noise aggressive style stuff usually goes right over my head except on the odd occasion.
I forgot to update the grosvenor gig thread with http://www.last.fm/festival/3580079+Destroy+All+Artifacts which was on last night. The bits I heard before going home were definitely full on noise.
I went to Author and Punisher on Wednesday night and that was very good, not sure if it fits into the noise thing though
He is playing another show in London on Sunday and currently touring the UK (Glasgow tonight Birmingham tomorrow).
That does read rather dodgily doesn't it?
i wish chico would come back . i see from fb that he's listened to a new live consumer electronics album three times today.
reckon he'd have something to add to the thread.
hm, i see from discogs that consumer electronics once had a side project called male rape group. how daring.
A major problem with noise is the macho edgier-than-thou posturing that comes with certain strains of it. And all the violent track titles and album covers - totally unnecessary.
I'm not sure about Merzbow's bondage porn fixation either.
Abrasive music - abrasive titles like Throttled Child
I do like some Noise, I like the total immersion and the textures. I'm fussy though, and from some of the shows I've seen it is often used as excuse to have no musical talent...
To be fair there's a blurred boundary between 'noise' and some of the more extreme forms of metal, which I do like, a lot.
I like Sunn O))) - especially the Black album and the 2 White albums. They're not 'noise' but they're certainly there on the edges somewhere.
Einsturzende Neubauten are amazing, though again not strictly 'noise', they do verge on it at times (especially live).
And then there's Fuck the Facts .. they're .. interesting.
Here's something I heard recently, it came to me through my love of Black Metal and it is .. kind of .. but it's also Noise .. kind of .. and it's one of the darkest, most tripped-out noises I've ever heard...
Anyone going to see Vatican Shadow next month btw?
he's playing manchester, but it's a friday and i can't do fridays.
I am showing some noise related films in London on Sunday 14th July:
More noise and filthy cut and paste layout.
yes please fozzie.
Oh I am also enjoying the work of Spoils & Relics now.
Abstract indistinct noises. Very odd. Not harsh.
this is quite a piece of work Fozzie Bear ! cheers, that's my bedtime reading sorted for the next few days.
Glad you got it OK. It was fun to do, but took ages
I have a track of abstract and abrasive noise on this benefit compilation for homelessness:
Also features Nocturnal Emissions, Ceramic Hobs, Ekoplekz, Libbe Matz Gang, etc.
Which one are you? Whoregasm?
LOL. #17 as Ska says.
Separate names with a comma.
