Norwegian Noise Orchestra - Live At Oyafestivalen [Ambolt - 2008]

As the projects title suggest this really is an orchestra with in all 22 people involved in the chaos with-in & Through it stays in the noise genre fairly squarely for it's running time there are improv, electro acoustic & junk band elements at play too.

This is as the title suggests is a live recording, but whether all the members were on stage at one time is unclear- if they were it must have been a big stage, anyway on to the sound with-in. The piece last in all just over half-an hour & starts up with firing up feed-back and slow-mo car crash tone that sounds like there derived from a mix of guitar peddle and horns of some form. Soon the sound gets dense and more manic with horn honks going against throbbing electro pluses, meeting hacking improv guitar elements, weaved in and out by percussive hits- some making sense others not. Along with bit of children’s tunes, runaway drum machines, droning horror organ textures and all manner of sound throw in along the way. There not any divining or major sonic events along the way there just new elements that suddenly appear from the chaos do a little dance then dive back in again. I guess the best comparison would be Smegma with out the use of old advert and dialogue samples.

An enjoyable and varied swim in sonic chaos which drags you all over the place through its playing time & always remains inventive, shifting and deranged.
