About Obvious Noise
The "O./nois" Studio
"O./nois" Studio was created in the mid 1980's as a tool to create sound bytes
and 'tape scandals' for use during live performances of a local alternative band.
With professional sound reinforcement by Mr. Obvious, the band soon shot right
to the top. With a jam-packed schedule at such prestigious venues as... East Park
Nursing and Convelescence Arena, Westview Jr. High School, and the crowning glory,
playing back-up to the mechanical bears at Chuck-E-Cheeze's. The boys were indeed
on the fast track to success! So it was decided in the spring of 1987 that the
band should break-up forever.
The break-up left Mr. Obvious free to pursue his true passion: Flash-Paper
Origami. The tragic end to this endeavor was forseen by all but one.
In shock and with blistered fingers, Mr. Obvious began anew in the "O./Nois"
Studio. Working alone and with only the rudest of recording equipment, he began
constructing electronic "compositions" built around common noises and found sounds.
Early "instruments" included Pringles cans, stair steps, and a vacuum cleaner.
Later 'construction' consisted of manipulated tape noise and radio static in conjunction
with accepted instruments like trumpet, viola, and piano. And with the collaboration
of several friends and associates the "music" became almost bearable to listen
to. Electronic instruments also helped to create a listenable sound. The Arp Odyssey,
Moog Opus 3, Kawai K-5, and Ensoniq EPS became primary sound sources.
The compositions of today are created using the same means as before, and
therefore haven't improved much. Fortunately with the acquisition of the Atari
ST and subsequently a more up-to-date PC, productions are no longer dragged down
by his inept skills of performance.
For those with strong stomachs or bad ears, here are a few lower quality (stereo)
pieces from "O./Nois" productions.
