Artist Statement:


    This cd-rom takes a look at the history of the use of noise and found sound in twentieth century musical composition and performance, including Varese, Cage, Stockhausen, Reich, Zorn and contemporary ‘Industrial’ music (Einstijrzende Neubauten, Skinny Puppy, Front Line Assembly). Restless Machines takes a look at contemporary ‘Industrial’ music in the same light as the historical development that began with the Italian Futurists and looks at the ‘Industrial’ movement as part of a larger cultural phenomenon.
