Screw any use of the phrase "beautiful noise" by anyone else, pure noise -- industrial, natural, electronic, visceral, human -- can be as compelling as anything you've ever heard. No one can say "that's not music it's just noise" anymore -- because this stuff really intends to be noise. I leapt into noise as Art in the 90s when I arrived in Los Angeles, and Noise has always been part of the Chill Room, but tonight let's get specific and do a deep listen to what really are some of my favorite sounds EVER. And there are so many different approaches to making this kind of art.
