Inspiration, magnetic tape rings scattered all over the place, endless doubts as to whether this or that, something middle or something completely different or something like that – the stimulating mechanisms of the creators of noise music are as vague and ambiguous as she is. Motives that are hard to believe give birth Continue reading
