For the uninitiated, noise music is sometimes thought to originate with John Cage's provocative work, 4'33", which is wholly formed by the incidental sounds pervading an otherwise "silent" listening space. Today, noise music ranges from sine waves at the edge of human hearing to full-on blasts of static and feedback. This Saturday, Southern Illinois's finest noise artists will introduce noise music to the region on a live broadcast at WDBX-FM, hosted by "It's Too Damn Early" DJ DaveX.
The 1st Annual Southern IlliNOISE Summit will be broadcast on WDBX 91.1 FM from 4-6:30 am Saturday, April 18th, with a pre-show warmup of Midwestern noise recordings starting at 3 am.
The line-up includes:
Aaron Jones, of Maggotapplewonderland
Rick Leipold, Matthew Lee Lind; both of "Gorilla Heritage"
Cosmic Twilight Pimps
The Cloud Cuckoo Band
James McKain, of Glass Pyramid
