NOISY is a four letter word. The most unwanted byproduct of population is noise. Noise is a weed to be plowed under, for hope of a flower later, that a planet so wealthy with a resource that is pungent with chaotic bits of info could rhetorically sacrifice it to the distant surroundings, to the recent past. Noise is a food like oxygen, or is a piece of information like the mail.
Noise has entered our waking conscience, forcefully & can not be relinquished to the un/sub conscience. There lies within noise a manner of empowerization that is both organic & suggestive. Noise constitutes all that remains undigested, confused & in opposition.
Noise is the diamond of the future, mined & recycled for its luster, for its clues to the nature & construction of infinity. Noise reproduces in all directions with nucleic passion, with spidery unpredictability.

That quote from the liner notes is beautiful. I am currentlly studying the soundscapes of Kyoto, Japan and the relationship between acoustic ecology and the music of a given location. Japan’s noise rock like the Boredoms and Afrirampo and these bands use of unusual sounds in their music is related to the rapidly changing urban environment. I feel that noise or found sound plays a huge part in music today.
