Noize R Us
The music of Noize R Us is like walking into a giant toy store, consisting of noise and free improvised music. Immediately as you enter, it can perhaps seem massive and overwhelming, but if you let your curiosity take over and go searching for the things you didn’t know you wanted, you end up with a journey of sound discovery, regardless of whether you eventually find what you were looking for, or not.
The music is reminiscent of bands such as Supersilent, SKRIM, Fire! Orchestra, Møster, Arne Nordheim and MoE & Mette Rasmussen, with a mixture of the electric in the guitars, the noise from the no-input mixer and the acoustic in the saxophone and drums. In terms of genre, the music is fluid, but with references to noise music, free jazz, rock and doom metal.
