The Noise Perspective is a new podcast series here at From Corners Unknown. In it, we host artists who perform a 10 to 20 minute “live” set after a brief discussion about their music and process. Sets are live in the sense that artists play immediately after our discussion in real time. Once their set is complete, we suture it together with the conversation and apply minimal audio leveling to the performance so as to not shred the ears of listeners. If you are keen on blistering audio, however, we will be uploading the raw, non-leveled performances to our Patreon page.
This series is still in its infancy, but we do not have plans to restrict it to a specific genre. Given that this idea sprouted up through a conversation between myself and Worm Monolith—a rhythmic harsh noise artist—we found harsh noise to be a natural starting point for our first episode. We already have a couple more noise artists lined up for subsequent episodes and we plan to broach the realms of ambient and experimental music to broaden The Noise Perspective’s scope.
This first episode is a bit rough around the edges, but it’s safe to call it a proto-type. The general structure of episodes will morph and evolve as time moves along. And we sincerely hope you enjoy this new journey with us.
