Music

Restrung 2017: The NOISE

Presented by Restrung Productions

One of Australia’s most intriguing ensembles, The NOISE fuse multifarious musical personalities and interests into a unique ensemble sound.

Their members have worked for the likes of the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Sydney Symphony, Australian Brandenburg Orchestra and Sydney Dance Company, and collaborated with musicians such as Joanna Newsom, Gurrumul, and The Presets.

The NOISE’s approach to musical creation is very different from classical string quartets, placing improvisation at the centre of its artistic process, integrating electronic elements and effects, and utilising processes more familiar to bands, such as collective composition and collaboration. All of these influences have converged to create an unusual form of virtuosity within the group, and an arsenal of string playing techniques not typically found amongst classical string ensembles.
