Press Play: A Noise Introduction

Welcome to Press Play, the playlist that will showcase the music and sounds featured in the month’s Sonosphere podcast. Today we will take you through the sounds of what many categorize as noise music through the 20th and 21st century.

We begin with Italian futurist artists Luigi and Antonio Russolo and move into 40s, 50s and 60s experimental music. Many of the early songs you will hear first are pulled from the Anthology of Noise and Electronic Music from Sub Rosa so check that out if you are interested. Then we move to a noisy amalgamation of songs from 80s and 90s by Throbbing Gristle, Loop Orchestra, Sonic Youth, Black Dice, Wolf Eyes, and The Books.
