Episode 1: A Brief History of Noise

Welcome to Sonosphere episode 1 A Brief History of Noise. 

Chris and I went to see Wolf Eyes, an American noise band from Michigan at Glitch Gallery – a small house venue for art and music in Memphis. I knew about noise music and listened to Black Dice and Sonic Youth but I didn’t really know about noise bands like Wolf Eyes and Japanoise band, Hijokaidan. So, after seeing Wolf Eyes, I wanted to know more. Where did this noise come from?! Today’s podcast looks at the surface of what is known as “noise music”
