(n)oise series is a collection of compositions that explore the concept and practice of noise in sound, performance, and music. The series was a long-term research and recording project by composer, improvisor, and curator Owen Davis. There are 10 works in the series, but this album is a collection of them that could be adequately captured by a microphone. Others exist in video form because they explore a visual and performative noise.

I would like to thank George Lewis, Paul Hegarty, Aaron Einbond, Aaron Cassidy, and Douglas Kahn for their inspiration as makers and thinkers in the realm of noise.
