PEAKS: Noise

  • Joyeux Bordel 147 Curtain Place London, EC2A United Kingdom (map)
PEAKS: Noise @ Joyeux Bordel, Shoreditch - 1st March 2016

A night of interruption, disorientation and noise, curated by Hannah Evans and Ellie Green. We will be interrogating the role noise plays, as a music genre and otherwise, in our lives as occupants of the city. From Merzbow to Ade Fakile, we will look into how noise can be both a way to sink into the daily grind and how it can effectively stage a jarring interruption to it. Is the city lost? Are we? What do we do with the lost and sound? 

Panel Discussion @ 6.30pm- 7pm

Ellie Green: Noise enthusiast, academic wannabe, owns a plectrum once used by Keiji Haino

Joseph Burnett: Music journalist

Rusty Nail: Maker of noise, producer of sorts, currently hitting drums, samplers, and scrap metal for Dogfeet.

Hannah Thompson: Sound artist

John Parry: Audio / Video
