The Tucson Noise Symposium


A week of performances and other events in Tucson, April 3 - 9 2017.

The idea is: Let's gather together people doing noise in Tucson (and beyond!) Let's listen to all the different ways they are doing noise. I don't know what noise is. One recent definition off the top of my head: sound-making with an identity crisis. We asked a variety of show makers in Tucson to organize shows that highlight noise (as they know it, think it, imagine it). Everything is open to everybody and each show is 5 dollars or free.

A mashup night of harsh noise and primitive 8 bit (utopian) video games! Hacking into the evening is Tucson's twisted techno treasure Matt Rios navigating hardware game glitches. The feature act is an epic re-appropriation of 1984's King's Quest videogame through the sonic noise of Eric Schlappi, Anthony Sanchez, David Sherman and the all-consuming noise progenitor magus NOT BREATHING (David Wright).
