The work finds David and Joe shifting their approach to the uses of field recordings. Taking the artists into new directions in the editing of sound, integrating aspects of rhythm, signal processing and spatial recording within the framework of minimalist composition. Interrogating the perceptual boundaries between noise and music, researching the potential for sound to be embed back into the architecture.

MAKEaNOISE [art of noises]
9th March 2013 | 2 – 4pm
On March 9, 1913, during our bloody victory over four thousand passé-ists in the Costanzi Theater of Rome, we were fist-and-cane-fighting in defense of your Futurist Music, performed by a powerful orchestra, when suddenly my intuitive mind conceived a new art that only your genius can create: the Art of Noises, logical consequence of your marvelous innovations.
