  Digital Noise: Music & Tech - CNET Blogs
This month's Wired feature on Universal Music Group CEO Doug Morris--which was posted online--has received a lot of commentary, most of it damning Morris as representative of a clueless and mortally wounded industry.
This was the era in which everybody learned about a musical act at the same time--the fabled Beatles-on-Ed-Sullivan moment--and it wasn't uncommon for active bands consisting of young people to sell out 20,000-seat arenas.
When's the last time a young, non-nostalgia-act rock and roll band had that many fans?) Brooks argues the explosion of musical genres in the last 20 years has eliminated this common bond, and helped contribute to (or perhaps is symptomatic of) a disintegration of shared culture.

  Music & Noise
Musical intervals are cyclic over an octave, so the sequence repeats as you go up to the next octave or down to the lower octave.
Pink noise is a random noise source characterized by a flat amplitude response per octave band of frequency (or any constant percentage bandwidth), i.e., it has equal energy, or constant power, per octave.
Since pink noise has the same energy in each 1/3-octave band, it is the preferred sound source for many acoustical measurements due to the critical band concept of human hearing.

Secondly, as famous noise musician Masami Akita said, "If by noise you mean uncomfortable sound, then pop music is noise to me." Noise music is not necessarily "noise" to the listeners, although it is certainly "noisy" in the more general sense of the term.
Noise music is loosely related to industrial, sharing its DIY ethos, independence and ethic of using "non-musical" sources.
Noise music is not particularly more popular in Japan than in Europe or America, although there is perhaps a higher level of recognition from crossover with "mainstream" genres and events, such as fashion shows or dance performances with music by "Japanoise" artists.

 Noise music Information
"Noise" music is regarded by some as a contradiction in terms, because "noise" is generally defined as unwanted and undesigned or unintentional sound and music as the opposite (see Definition of music).
Noise music is loosely related to industrial music, sharing its DIY ethos, independence and ethic of using "non-musical" sources.
Noise music's often grating characteristics may be used by its listeners to punish themselves, in much the same way as when people induce other forms of pain in search of pleasure.

  U B U W E B :: The Aesthetics of Noise
Noises are sounds that are impure and irregular, neither tones nor rhythm - roaring, pealing, blurry sounds with a lot of simultaneous frequencies, as opposed to a rounded sound with a basic frequency and its related overtones.

 Noise Poster Boys | Music | The Stranger, Seattle's Only Newspaper
To the naysayer, noise is just another nail in the coffin of an already diluted music community, where hard-working songwriters and instrumentalists are forced to tread in the same waters as any talentless geek with an oscillator.
Noise music, along with most other modern art movements worth their salt, had its inception with the Italian futurist movement of the early 20th century, chiefly with a painter and composer by the name of Luigi Russolo.
These ideas were picked over by the academics (90 percent of early electronic music is for all intents and purposes noise music), and much later were embraced by outcasts of the burgeoning punk movement such as Throbbing Gristle and Cabaret Voltaire.

 JMM: The Journal of Music and Meaning - Torben Sangild - Noise - Three Musical Gestures
Noise in music is usually an element in an overall musical gesture and takes its meaning in relation to this gesture.
Noise is like an eruption within the material out of which language is shaped...This is why noise and horror go hand in hand - because madness and violence are senseless and arbitrary (violence is the refusal to argue) and the only response is wordless - to scream.
Noise is not always extrovert, outwardly directed, and climax-oriented – even though this is by far the most common employment of noise, especially in rock music.

 Deconstruction, Music, and Noise Aesthetics :: Ephilosopher :: Philosophy News, Research and Philosophical Discussion
Musical instruments provide the output for the primitive vibrations so that the frequencies are processed by the instruments to produce a continuous, unified, and evocative composition, through melody, harmony, rhythm, and timbre.
Noise frequencies are like the constantans in the alphabet, because of their quick and harsh nature, so when there are too many of them together in one word, like in the Germanic languages, the inexperienced person will find it vexating to understand and appreciate.
Noise is just as important, as organized sound, because without knowing profound ugliness and chaos, we will not have a background of which to appreciate beautiful compositions of the highest talent.

 MUSIC VS. NOISE
But the code does not directly address the residential use of musical instruments, except to imply that if it bothers someone else it is unnecessary noise and therefore a violation.
Part of every residential lease is a covenant by the landlord to the tenant guaranteeing the quiet, peaceful enjoyment of his or her rented space.
If, however, a musician is conducting extensive music lessons within his or her apartment, the courts may construe this as an unreasonable use of a residential space as intended by the landlord.

 What is Noise Music (Noize)?
Where "music" is structured, organized, preplanned sound, "noise" is chaotic and random sound that serves no purpose.
So "noise" is relative; as an extreme point of reference, when one refers to today's noise music, there is typically the association to some insane Japanese sound sculptor screaming and pounding sound through endless feedback loops of overdriven distortion pedals and short wave radios, producing waveforms in chaotic and unpredictable shapes.
But in it's creation, however random, however chaotic, "noise music" has a beginning and an end; it has a defined set of instrumentation and a set of controls; there are actions required to produce the sound.

 League for the Hard of Hearing
Whether the music is at a rock concert, from a classical orchestra, a school band, your personal stereo system with headphones, your home stereo or car stereo, or if you are a sound engineer, if the music is played too loud for too long, hearing damage is inevitable.
Exposure to loud music is somewhat different from industrial noise, however, due to the "intermittent" nature of the music - that is, music is filled with both quiet and intense passages.
Certain musical instruments carry specific risk: the left ear is typically worse for violists, violinists and drummers while the right ear is typically worse for flute and piccolo players.

 Industrial Prehistory: Anti-Music
None of the people involved in industrial music seems to have thought much in a theoretical way about their use of noise elements, which is in keeping with the groups' general ignorance of musical matters.
Another key element is that the new music will operate outside the mainstream musical industry, but the most important component is that the new music will rediscover noise and violence as crucial for its expression (he cites John Cage and free jazz as prototypes of this new musical stage).
Edgar Varèse, lauded by John Cage as the "father of noise" in twentieth century music composed much that was radical by conventional classical musical standards, but little that matches the noise music of recent years.
