Nor Noise is a documentary – or rather an interview film – about Noise music. Which is not music nor mere noise but something in between. 

Through 12 interviews with 12 highly diverse artists within the Noise scene, answers are given to What is Noise? Where does it come from? How do you work with sounds as your main instrument? The relationship between Noise and popular culture is reflected upon, and Noise is put into a historical context spanning from the Futurists and up to todays laptop artists. 

The film contains a lot of rare concert footage with the artists. Featured artists: TORE H. BØE, DAVID COTNER, MASAMI AKITA, LASSE MARHAUG, TASHIMARU NAKAMURA, ARM, ASBJØRN FLØ, MAJA S.K. RATKJE, KJELL RUNAR JENSSEN, FRANCISCO LÓPEZ, HELGE STEN and OTOMO YOSHIHIDE. 

“This film started out with me wanting to make a documentary about Lasse Marhaug. But that had to include what happened on the especially vibrant noise scene in Trondheim around the turn of the century. And it had to include Tore H. Bøe, whom together with Lasse organized it all. 

This was back in 2001. That year was seminal for Noise in Norway. The compilation “Le Jazz Non” got rave reviews and made the media aware of the fact that Norwegian Noise artists were having success abroad. And a lot of big names came to Norway: Masami Akita, Otomo Yoshihide, Tashimaru Nakamura, Francisco López. Suddenly “everybody” talked about Noise music. And I was in the middle of it all with a camera, asking every artist I met the same simple question: “What is Noise music?” 

This film collects twelve different answers from twelve very different artists. Even though they work differently, have different musical backgrounds and seem to have very little in common musically, they belong to the same tradition. Through the interviews the history, aesthetics and technical aspects of Noise is covered. That’s the red line of this film. 

I never had any money making this film, so the artists interviewed are the ones I had the opportunity to meet. But this isn’t a comprehensive history about noise music or about the artists anyway, it’s a documentation of some of the ideas and techniques that make up Noise music. Another thing: This film was always meant to be released as a DVD; hence the structure. Also I wanted to make a simple, clean cut film where the visual expression didn’t emulate the Noise music. I wanted to make a film where the artist got the time to say what they had to say about what they were doing. And that’s this. 

(By the way: The Masami Akita interview – it’s supposed to be like that…)”

What if (by Jennifer zang)

shirleygirlrn:

What if…

I stay, pretending I am not crumbling inside? That with each passing day I decide to start loving myself as much as I love you?

I begin listening to my barely audible, quivering inner voice.

What if…

I stay, using the pain as a secret ingredient, creating a concoction, sustaining both of our souls.

While lost in my crafts, I discover a hidden map in the landscape of the photography or a cryptic message between the lines of my erratic writings. The mystery of finding us again is solved.

What if…

I share a soliloquy with friends, portraying our struggles in the eloquence of a fleeting summer rainstorm.

We lean into each other as angry thunder erupts from our souls, holding a space to be heard and loved.

What if…

I know all of this is a maze of lies. Intricately designed twists, blind alleys and turns. I am unable to find the path leading to the outside.

So I stay.

Or rather, some form of me stays. A foreign being with a sealed door to her heart, the light within extinguished. A stranger to both of us.

Somehow you know the way out. Or maybe, the truth is, you never walked on a path with me. You remained on the outside.

So you leave.

I am stuck… with me, this foreign being, this stranger. And a growing collection of, “What if?”

I am running to the past, trying to recapture time. In the darkness, I stumble. Falling to my knees.

I am too tired to stand. Too tired to cry. Too fired to fight.

In the darkness, a soothing sound washes over me. My inner voice gently shares…

What if…

You let go of the questions from the past, the illusion of going back in time to change the outcome.

You quit running, trying to block the pain. Embrace it. Accept it as part of your journey.

What if…

You allow yourself to drop into this moment. Stand in your own truth, even if it feels messy and ugly. Drop the judgment, the fear. Open the door to your heart, inviting in the unknown.

You realize in this moment, in every moment, you are enough. Release the thoughts of inferiority hindering you from moving forward with your life purpose.

What if…

Pain is replaced with the love of forgiveness.

Forgiveness for him.

Forgiveness for me.

What if…

What if… what you write is absolutely fantastic? Because it is.
