Noise, Music & Sound
Essential links The art of Noise: www.theartofnoiseonline.com
Music is an art form and cultural activity whose medium is sound and silence. The common elements of music are
PITCH (which governs melody and harmony),
RHYTHM (and its associated concepts tempo, meter, and articulation),
DYNAMICS (loudness and softness), and the
sonic qualities of timbre and texture (which are sometimes termed the “color” of a musical sound).
In physics, sound is a vibration that propagates as a typically audible mechanical wave of pressure and displacement, through a medium such as air or water. In physiology and psychology, sound is the reception of such waves and their perception by the brain.
Noise is sound that is not wanted by the perceiver, because it is unpleasant, loud, or interferes with hearing. This results in the subjective discretion between sound and noise, where any sound may be considered noise depending on the perceiver. From a physics standpoint, noise is indistinguishable from sound as both are vibrations through a medium, like air or water. The difference arises from how the brain receives and perceives a sound.
Music,Sound & Noise: HISTORY of Noise Music
Noise music is a category of music that is characterised by the expressive use of noise within a musical context. This type of music tends to challenge the distinction that is made in conventional musical practices between musical and non-musical sound.
Noise music includes a wide range of musical styles and sound-based creative practices that feature noise as a primary aspect. It can feature acoustically or electronically generated noise, and both traditional and unconventional musical instruments.
It may incorporate live machine sounds, non-musical vocal techniques, physically manipulated audio media, processed sound recordings, field recording, computer-generated noise, stochastic process, and other randomly produced electronic signals such as distortion, feedback, static, hiss and hum.
There may also be emphasis on high volume levels and lengthy, continuous pieces. More generally noise music may contain aspects such as improvisation, extended technique, cacophony and indeterminacy, and in many instances conventional use of melody, harmony, rhythm and pulse is dispensed with.
