QuoteWhat is youth culture now, if the parents are no longer overly hostile towards even transgressive expressions? Or they may be far more experienced in all the oddities?
QuoteI do not rule out possibility of new generations finding the new ways of doing noise that is improving what we have had before. I do not see "online noise" as progression at all. If new expressions of noise happen firmly hand in hand with climate of mainstream culture, I don't see that as progress, but regress.

Quote from: Balor/SS1535 on July 05, 2022, 09:36:05 PMI only had the chance to skim the article, so hopefully this is not repeating some of what was said: One of the things I wondered about when reading the article was the link between noise/industrial and what I guess could be called the cultural background and source material that surrounds what seems to be so much of it. While knowledge of Throbbing Gristle's philosophy about taboo imagery and ideas or an awareness of the citation of contemporary geopolitical conflicts in the works of Genocide Organ are certainly not intrinsically neccessary in order to get a lot out of their music, I think it does provide a deeper appreciation for what they are doing. In turn, I would think that developed personal interests would tend to lead artists to producing noise/industrial works that are more interesting.I guess what I am saying is that it takes a lot of time to really cultivate personal interests in these cultural inspirations that can be found across noise music, and that that might explain some of why noise/industrial might not seem to be much of a "youth culture." It takes a long time to read the books, watch the movies, hunt down the artworks, even listen to other's noise--as well as, perhaps, a degree of maturity to fully appreciate them.
