Re: Noise musicians: How do you release your work?

Making a tape with bizzarro artwork is half the fun of what makes noise noise. agreed, and then trading said tape for someone elses bizzarro tape. while i do listen to noise from bandcamp and youtube for convenience, it's mostly stuff that's either oop or too expensive to ship from the states. i do...

Re: General noise discussion (releases, shows, techniques)

Also I'm going to be lazy as fuck and quote some releases from other people's posts. Sorry not sorry. i love noise, and listen to a lot of meat & potatoes stuff but it's just as genrefied as any style of music. if we're comparing, noise is like punk. now and then a new style or sound emerges that so...

General noise discussion (releases, shows, techniques)

In stead of investing time and energy to discuss the credibility of noise (which has already been discussed a million times over, we already know most people don't like it, you are not original) what's better than to discuss noise releases, new & old tapes/CDs/LPs, noise shows you've played or seen ...

Re: Zip drives, USB sticks. Do you trust them?

WORM media or NO media! Joking aside, what a weird question, neither is build for backup nor long term storage and the later is obsolete and shouldn't even be considered. If you really want to go for a flash based backup solution, SSD's are okay for approx. 5 to 8 years if you are not doing anything...

Re: black/metal/noise/death/free jazz?

Lot's of jazzrock / freejazzmetal thingies go with at least one electric bass so was asking to be sure!

Re: Music you sort of get but can't get get into

Noise. I get it, but i think i need to be at least 30 years younger to be into it. It's kind of the same with much of the EBM music, i used to love it but its a little too "edgy" or whatever, something you like when young and angsty. You are not wrong but especially nowadays there is so much noise ...

Re: Behringer Swing

Re: $99 Behremin anyone?

As long as there are CV outputs I might buy it for only that.

If finances allows I might even consider getting...

Re: Any Suggestions Custom Apparel for Label?

My suggestion is to find and contact a local printer/screen printing shop, so it's much easier to communicate your wishes and try out the fabrics. Also, support local!

Simplicity or maybe rather a rudimentary approach to sound or structure does not mean no effort.

Re: structure in noise

His algorithm was basically a) select a sound source, b) input sound source into a massive pedal chain c) record it straight to tape. I'd personally want to listen to something composed and structured than somebody just running a cassette into a pedal chain and recording it. I don't think you need ...

Re: anyone like deadline

Deadline recs yeah? Not really, when I got to know it he released shoddy overpriced CD-Rs and now....I'm still not really interested in it. He has a way of making releases look really cheap. I rather spend my money on something more interesting.

I keep noticing - every time i am fucking with my synths or an acoustic instrument...and just go - "that was sick"
vs the amount of times i compose with intent at the DAW and go "fuck this is shit"....things are in favour of the former, by a long shot.

Re: Why is some techno good and some bad?

Same as most genres actually, but the motifs are generally more restricted than many other genres, which is another factor in what makes good techno hard to make. Hasn't this more to do with the current frame of time? What was called Techno in 1996 or 1998 was (often) a lot less restrictive and had...
