NOISE orchestra are a Manchester based duo use light, DIY electronics, turntables and graphical scores to transform visual images and objects into NOISE. Their work involves hacking technology, sonifying the everyday and putting the technology into peoples hands to let them explore this alternative way of looking at an environment themselves.

Inspired by the radical spirit of the 1920’s Russian avante garde they have developed a series of ‘NOISE machines’, devices that enable you to turn light into sound. With these machines they’ve undertaken residencies at STEIM, Q-02 and CTM Festival as well as creating public installation work in the form of soundwalks and interventions.

They recently received a commission from ENLIGHT: European Light Expression Network in which they used portable NOISE machines to tour light festivals and cities. The orchestra is made up of Vicky Clarke and David Birchall two sound artists with rich backgrounds in multimedia art. NOISE orchestra can be found creating art, experimental music, leading workshops and making instruments in various guises with the common focus of creating sound from light.

This spring the duo are opening up their studio to those who want to get to grips with the worlds of the DIY electronics and producing noise through light and circuit bending.
