ABOUT

FIRST, THERE WAS NOISE. AND THEN THERE WAS THE GLOBAL NOISE MOVEMENT. THIS IS THE SHORT VERSION ABOUT FOUNDING THIS ARTIST’S NETWORK. BUT THE LONG AND MORE ENTERTAINING STORY GOES AS FOLLOWS: ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WERE A DJ AND A DJANE WITH AN UNLIMITED PASSION FOR ANY KIND OF NOISE MUSIC. THEY ENJOYED PLAYING RHYTHMIC NOISE AND (US) INDUSTRIAL WHILE SHOWING MANGA LIKE BACKGROUND VISUALS AT A VERY SMALL AND DARK AND ALSO EXTREMELY MOIST VENUE ALMOST EVERY SATURDAY NIGHT IN LATE 2000/EARLY 2001. THEIR TINY FLOOR WAS HIDDEN IN A CELLAR TYPE THREE DANCE FLOOR LOCATION AND TO GET TO THEIR FLOOR THE AUDIENCE HAD TO PASS POP MUSIC CLUBBERS AND METAL HEADZ. SOMETIMES THEY MUSTN’T WALK TROUGH, ‘CAUSE THERE WAS A BAND PLAYING ON THE MAIN STAGE, THAT WAS LOCATED RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE PROBABLY SMALLEST DANCE FLOOR THE UNIVERSE HAS EVER SEEN. BUT THE CROWD WAS PATIENT AND WAITED, SOMETIMES FOR LONG HOURS. AND IT WAS WORTH THE WAITING, EVEN THOUGH THEY SOMETIMES TRAVELLED FAR JUST TO DANCE TO SOME ECLECTIC NOISE MUSIC AT 3 AM IN THE MORNING FOR HALF AN HOUR UNTIL THE FLOOR WAS CLOSED. SO IT WAS NEARLY UNBELIEVABLE AND SOMEHOW MAGICAL WHEN THIS DJ AND DJANE WERE DISCOVERED BY SOME LIKE MINDED ARTISTS. AND SOON AFTER, THE FIRST MEETINGS WERE HELD AND COLLABORATIONS WERE BORN. THIS WAS IN THE SUMMER OF 2001, AND THIS WAS WHEN GLOBAL NOISE MOVEMENT WAS FOUNDED. SHORTLY AFTER GLOBAL NOISE MOVEMENT WAS OFFERED TO CREATE A NOISE FLOOR FOR WAVE GOTIK TREFFEN AT MORITZBASTEI, AN EVENT THAT GREW FROM AN ONE NIGHT PERFORMANCE TO A THREE NIGHTS SERIES OVER THE YEARS AND INCLUDES THE OPENING AND FINAL PARTIES WITH OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCES OF FINE SELECTED NOISE ARTISTS COMING FROM THE GLOBAL NOISE MOVEMENT NETWORK AND IT’S FRIENDS AND SUPPORTERS. BUT THESE ARE NOT THE ONLY NOISE PARTIES THAT WERE CREATED. SINCE THE BEGINNING OF GLOBAL NOISE MOVEMENT THERE HAVE BEEN UNFORGETTABLE COOPERATIONS THAT ORIGINATED EVENTS SUCH AS RESISTANCE IS FUTILE, BERLINOIZE, WIRED, ANAKRONISM, INDUSTRIALISATION, KRACH(O)MAT, INDUSTRIAL CULTURE, NOISE UNITED, ELECTRONIC PING PONG AND ARTISTS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD HAS SINCE BEEN ABLE TO GET IN TOUCH, TRAVEL THE WORLD AND WORK TOGETHER. GLOBAL NOISE MOVEMENT AFTER ALL IS A NON-PROFIT NETWORK OF ARTISTS, IN PARTICULAR MUSICIANS, VISUAL ARTISTS, MULTI MEDIA ARTISTS, VJS, DJS AND EVENT PLANNERS. IT IS SUPPOSED TO REPRESENT AUDIOVISUAL NOISE AND ARTISTS WORKING IN THIS GENRE TO VALUE THEIR WORK THAT IS MOST OF THE TIME RATHER A TIME CONSUMING AND DEARLY LOVED HOBBY THAN A WELL-PAID JOB IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY. THEREFORE, GLOBAL NOISE MOVEMENT LIVES FROM UNIQUE EVENTS WITH NOISY SOUNDS, WHICH ARE FOUND IN ALL KINDS OF ELECTRONIC MUSIC. SO IF YOU LIKE THE IDEA BEHIND GLOBAL NOISE MOVEMENT, THERE ARE MANY WAYS TO SUPPORT THIS NETWORK. FIRST, YOU CAN CREATE A NOISE-RELATED EVENT AND BOOK ONE, SOME OR ALL OF THE GNMIES. (PLEASE KEEP IN MIND, GLOBAL NOISE MOVEMENT IS NOT A BOOKING AGENCY, YOU HAVE TO CONTACT THE ARTISTS DIRECTLY.) SECONDLY, YOU CAN JOIN GLOBAL NOISE MOVEMENT AND ENRICH/SUPPORT THE NETWORK WITH YOUR IDEAS, MUSIC, VISUALS, TECHNICAL EQUIPMENT, DESIGN SKILLS, EVENT LOCATION OR FUNDING. THIRDLY, YOU CAN PURCHASE THE CREATIVE OUTCOMES OF ANY ARTIST (JUST CHECK THEIR ORIGINAL WEBSITES), OF THE GNM LABEL ON BANDCAMP OR GET A GNM SHIRT (EVEN FOR YOUR KID) ON SPREADSHIRT. BUT THE PROBABLY EASIEST WAY OF SUPPORT IS: YOU CAN FOLLOW US ON MIXCLOUD AND FACEBOOK. SO THANKS FOR LISTENING, WATCHING, JOINING AND KEEPING GLOBAL NOISE MOVEMENT ALIVE. YEAH!
