Day of Noise

Audio and Video

About

All things strange and beautiful. Twenty-four hours straight of live experimentation and improvisation, featuring experimental/noise/drone bands and artists from the Bay Area and beyond. A KZSU tradition since the '90s: this is the 14th Day of Noise. Listen in on 90.1 FM in the Bay Area and kzsulive.stanford.edu around the world.

As the founder of Day of Noise, KZSU DJ Voice of Doom puts it:
Noise is the liberation of sound from the narrow rules of conventional music, calling a project noise frees you up to include any kind of sound in the artwork. The Day of Noise event has always been about the freedom of non-commercial radio to deviate from the standardized conceptions of what the audience wants or needs. It exploits the immediacy of the radio format with live performance (which really includes live DJing), there are always actual human beings in the loop making off-the-cuff decisions about what sounds should come next. The listener has the feeling that at any moment, anything might happen, because anything can. The point is to embrace all kinds of creative sounds, not to rule out some types of music for not being noisy enough.
