63 Results for Noise | No Signal

Grouped under this theme we are including performances that are explicitly drawing on or related to Noise as a ‘musical’ genre but also as a concept from information theory. Alongside this we’re looking among the archive for work where the idea of ‘no signal’ seems a key element. Keiji Haino’s torrential solo vocal performance from Episode 2: A Special Form of Darkness offers a way in.
