For the record - this asshole is harassing me with pm's.

He posted on another thread asking to be friends, and I thought we had this resolved, and now he's evoking posts that had already been made.

Stupid asshole newbie fuck.

I would hurt you with my mind, as I can cause your eyes to turn inside out with the pure power of thought. But I am not from Chicago.

Well that's true. After you complained that you would complain I dared you to complain. Lol

Can you please take back the mean things you've said about me? I'm going to probably hang with a few Chicago wigglers and you may have given them the wrong impression of me.

What the new folks don't understand is that Nelson Baboon is 70 feet tall, covered with razor wire fur, and shoots rabid assault dolphins from orifices in his extra dozen arms. I know because I've bought modules from him in person, and was forced to kneel before him by his army of radioactive mutant half baboon, half gorilla, half alligator commandos. Beware, indeed.

Saw Mattin deliver a discourse on this at No Fun Fest a few years back. Raw computer noise then a strange berating of the audience for actaully sitting through hours of noise sets. Best performance I've seen in a while insofar as it was very alienating but for a completely different reason than volume.

The Noise/capitol book is good but it's a little dense/dry too.
we in taumaturgia are finishing the edition (in collab with cac bregtiny) the complete edition of mattin´s essays

To me, "noise" as a style of music is about found materials, sonic scrap, and no (or subverted) tonalty. Re: phat beatz, percussion and sequences definitely come off as noise if the timbre is raw enough, or the patterns are sufficiently difficult. Some of the more freakish breakcore I like I would say crosses over into noise. Making beats from location recordings also.

The point is liberation from restrictive rules and consumerism. Street-level punk fluxus improvisation with audio is noise. Not using instruments can be noise. Not knowing or using music theory can be noise.

When I was a kid (1980s), everybody I knew referred to this as "industrial music", which somehow confusingly became the name of a genre of silly club music. In the 90s many referred to any difficult-to-pidgeonhole music as "experimental" which i have always hated because the listener typically has no way to know if the music is actually an experiment at all.

IMO musical genres are only of any use to marketers and music store owners who need to label bins for consumers, or insecure people who are trying to re-enforce which subculture they want to identify with. I typically don't bother with stylistic categories because music to me is an artistic process, rather than a commodified product.

Here we are...five years later...

Noise to me, is the soundtrack of obsession. Not just obsession but at least when I listen to THE RITA, that is what I feel. Early PRURIENT gives me that feeling too. Where as BASTARD NOISE and WOLF EYES stuff is more dread.

YELLOW TEARS is more the 'fun' side of insanity. If ATRAX MORGUE is the dark and horrible side of obsessiveness and insanity (killing people, molesting them etc.). YELLOW TEARS is more the crazy otaku weeb or grown man thinking he is a Disney Princess. It's funny in a sad way.

If you guys like synths and noise I highly recommend material off the STRANGE RULES catalogue. It is noisey but also layered in melodic synths.

Noise is a little tweeting bird chirping in a meadow. Noise is a wreath of pretty flowers which smell BAD.

Just reading Aldous Huxleys 'Doors of Perception' and I'm finding some tie ins about how I loosely define 'Noise Music'.

One of his ideas is that man has adapted to basically filter out the enormous amounts of noise coming from the universe and environment in order to survive. Essentially we have been conditioned to focus on particular frequencies(light, sound etc.) so that we can create useful symbols, including language.

The cool thing about noise is it's basically a bypass of our normalizing functions., If we allow it to carry us we can experience things outside our normal symbolic make up. Kind of like a shamanic trip.

I wonder how Huxley would have reacted to these sounds, probably would've blown a gasket... :sb:
