Might give that a go then. Recognize the artists in the description. One member of my band is huuuugely into Japanese Noise and a bunch of the more experimental guys like Alvin Lucier, Bob Ostertag, and Carlos Giffoni (my favorite) to name a few. Then there's the American artists like Aaron Dilloway. So much going on nowadays with noise.
