I listened to a few tracks of 'clockwork'. Rhythms and simple melodies ... loops... with distortion, more PE or electronica than Noise which typically hasn't these 'musical' features. Though many use the term 'noise' for more or less anything.

I'm not saying the work is bad, just not that weird ... your / our problem is in a world where every minute 300 hours of stuff is uploaded to youtube, not to include bandcamp and sound cloud this in effect creates real noise which prevents anyone specifically being heard.

So given we are in this herd, no "one" can be heard.

thank you for your input. see I wasn't really sure what to categorize what I make but since I am influenced by noise a lot I called it as such, but I understand where that might not necessarily be the case. I'm just trying to get my name out in different places but I understand if this isn't welcome.

That's fine I was just ribbing you for thinking it was weird.. if you posted it on a regular techno music site saying it was weird that might be an understatement but saying that here is redundant.

I liked what I listened to.. so keep at it :wall:

What might be helpful might be to check out the various origins of 'noise', a quick way is to look at the wiki

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noise_music

And then use youtube to hear the various examples given there. Especially the likes of Stockhausen and Cage but also its industrial origins.

Here is something from 1913!


I actually saw this...



the gear can be expensive!!!









A final Reich - weird shit - but beautiful IMO (from 1966)

I like it. I would classify it as power electronics if I had to, but very good. Keep up the good work.

oh, now that I actually listened, I realise you make pop music. Go buy a feedback looper, a deathmetal distortion and a delay, then come back. rely less on your laptop, more on pedals and spaghetti.

At least you got some decent beats, better than most techno.

The only rule of noise is no rules. If you make techno and call it noise, then it is noise.
