In preparation

Noise music is the music of anticipation. Today’s noise will be the music of tomorrow.

Noise music needs to have a sense of being out of control, of being near to collapse, using the failure of machinery pushed too far
Noise music is also full of the threat and promise of silence, of sensory deprivation.

Chow’s guide to playing the guitar

Preparation

1 Never tune your instrument
2 Forget everything you know
3 Remember – this is not a guitar anymore

Performance

Think nothing……
Wait until everything
Is absolutely Still within you

When you have attained this
Begin to play

As soon as you start to think, Stop
Try to retain the state of
Non-thinking

Then continue playing

Stockhausen
