Exploring Hideous Sound Design #MusicMonday

Is noise music? If not, can it become music? If so, what is the line? And if there is a line, where can I find an album that dances all over that line like Twila Tharp? A start might be this no talk video from Angela Seo and Jamie Stewart of LA experimental Xiu Xiu. Here’s more from Perfect Circuit:

During their recent visit to our studio, Angela Seo and Jamie Stewart from Xiu Xiu showed off a number of ways to make sounds that were as hideous and disgusting as possible…. In their first jam, Angela sculpts feedback loops with a collection of her favorite pedals from Earthquaker Devices, Boss, and Death by Audio, while Jamie helms the mixer and Trogotronic’s Valykrie, a modified test equipment oscillator. Next, Angela switches over to her Waldorf Streichfett, while Jamie moves to a couple pedals of his own: Death by Audio’s Echo Dream 2 and Benidub’s DS71 Dub Siren. Angela and Jamie then both perform some solo Eurorack patches, and Angela closes things out with a solo performance on her Streichfett and pedals.

See and hear more!
