Gert-Jan Prins - Noise Capture
On Noise Capture Prins combines radio and television static with electronics and percussion to create seven tracks of layered noise. Along the way, there are all sorts of percussive interruptions, exploding bombs, scratches, drills, clicks, and other industrial sounds, although static is the most prevalent. The results are relentlessly irritating, though surprisingly effective. This is a long way from traditional jazz of any genre, and fits more appropriately in the category of improvised “new” music. It is not for the faint of heart, and it even sits on the edge of the modern avant-garde.
