Art of Noise was an avant-garde synthpop group formed in 1983 by producer Trevor Horn, music journalist Paul Morley, and session musicians/studio hands Anne Dudley, J.J. Jeczalik, and Gary Langan. The group's mostly instrumental compositions were novel and often clever melodic sound collages based on digital sampler technology, which was new at the time. Inspired by turn-of-the-century revolutions in music, the Art of Noise was initially packaged as a faceless anti- or non-group, blurring the distinction between the art and its creators. The band is noted for their innovative use of electronics and computers in pop music and particularly for innovative use of sampling. The name of the group alludes to an essay by noted futurist Luigi Russolo. Image File history File links Flag_of_England. ... This article is about the capital of England and the United Kingdom. ...

From the earliest releases on ZTT, the band referred to themselves as both Art of Noise and The Art of Noise. The version with the article "the" was often preferred by third parties. To add to the confusion both official and unofficial releases and press material from the same releases use both versions, but Art of Noise is preferred.

History

Beginnings

In 1983, Trevor Horn, who had achieved a New Wave hit in 1979 with "Video Killed The Radio Star", which he recorded with Geoff Downes under the name Buggles, was working in the studio with Yes on what would become the album 90125, and with Frankie Goes to Hollywood on what would become the album Welcome to the Pleasuredome. In his employ were keyboardist/arranger Anne Dudley, keyboardist/programmer J.J. Jeczalik, and mixing engineer Gary Langan. The team had first assembled in 1981 to produce ABC's The Lexicon of Love album (which led to an instant increase in profile for all concerned). Though other possibilities are quite feasible, the most universal element in the group's naming seems to be the ubiquitous, bargain-bin "art of..." classical releases put out by second-rate record companies.

The technological impetus for the Art of Noise was the advent of the Fairlight CMI sampler, an electronic musical instrument invented in Australia that Horn was reportedly among the first to purchase. With the Fairlight, short digital sound recordings called samples could be "played" through a piano-like keyboard, while a computer processor altered such characteristics as pitch and timbre. While some musicians were using samples as adornment in their works, Horn and his companions saw the potential to craft entire compositions with the sampler, tossing the traditional rock aesthetic out the window, or at least turning it on its ear. It should be noted that others were working contemporaneously towards this goal: see Jean Michel Jarre and Yello. Producer and musician Tony Mansfield had made extensive use of the Fairlight for Naked Eyes eponymous debut album (the first pop album to feature such a hefty dosage of the CMI). Horn had previously put the sampling keyboard to great usage on The Lexicon of Love, mostly in order to tweak live-based elements of performance, but also to embellish the compositions with sound effects (such as a cash register's bell on "Date Stamp").

Samples—some borrowed from other pieces of music, such as the baritone "dum" from "Leave It" by Yes, but most coming from original sources—were bathed in reverb to mask the early sampler's low fidelity (or give a "concert hall" acoustic effect). One might imagine the voice of Elvis Presley's first syllable from the chorus of "I Can't Help Falling In Love With You" popping up on the first album. In the studio, these sounds were then assembled into various instrumental arrangements and sound collages. This was at first done with very little input from musicians "playing" instruments as they would in a typical band, but later works introduced traditional instruments as well. This article does not cite any references or sources. ...


In February 1983, with Paul Morley providing much of the band's art direction, Horn, Dudley, Jeczalik, and Langan formed the initial incarnation of The Art of Noise. The group's debut EP, Into Battle With The Art of Noise, appeared in September 1983 on Horn's fledgling ZTT label. It immediately scored a hit in the urban and alternative dance charts in the USA with the highly percussive, cut-up instrumental track "Beat Box", a favorite among breakdancers.

Anne: When the group first started we thought it would be a good idea to have an image that wasn't based around a fashion look. We thought it would encourage people to look at the music instead of the members of the band. It didn't last for long though.
Gary: It really doesn't seem a lot different actually, the responsibility a lot more different, it's probably more fun, more risk to it.
Anne: There's a very big risk in America because they think we're black, we were voted the second best new black act. We are wondering how we can quite cope with this.
Gary: There was at one point there came along an instrument that nobody had really used and we were lucky that we had one we could use. There are certain things you can do with it that you're not able to do with anything else. So it was a question of experimenting with that and things really took off from there.
Anne: This is the famous Fairlight music computer, which you may have heard of.
Gary: Which plays an important part. I really think that the music is more important than the personality. The fashion around a personality seems to change a lot quicker than that around music.

Art for art's sake

Morley managed the packaging of the project as a faceless "non-group", a work of art, itself, that merely existed. Band members never appeared in photos without masks, and sleeve art was filled with manifestos, quotes, photographs, and graphic design elements that stood in stark contrast to the unimaginative photo-of-the-band-and-some-lyrics motifs that were typical at the time. Musically, aside from the cleverness of deftly juxtaposing found sounds, the project was also intended to pay homage to the influence of Claude Debussy, who revolutionized popular music at the beginning of the 20th century, and to the sonic "Art of Noises" experiments of Italian Futurist Luigi Russolo.

The early videos for "Close (to the Edit)" were groundbreaking and unusual, becoming cult favorites on MTV. Critics' reviews of Into Battle and the more fully realized Who's Afraid Of The Art Of Noise? album (1984) were mixed, with some hailing the group's unique, deconstructive approach to sound and song construction, and others dismissing them as a pretentious novelty band.

"Moments In Love"—a ten-minute, downtempo, instrumental ode to sensuality that appeared on both Into Battle and Who's Afraid—was remixed and released as a single in 1985 (first released in the USA in 1983 where it was a moderate hit on the US R&B Singles chart). It was played at Madonna's wedding, used in the soundtrack to the movie Pumping Iron II: The Women, used in a number of advertisements, and remixed, covered, and sampled by other artists for years afterward, and has appeared in numerous chill out compilations as well as becoming a staple of smooth jazz radio station playlists.

It was also around 1985 that Dudley, Jeczalik and Langan made an acrimonious split from Morley and Horn, as well as from the ZTT label. The circumstances of the reorganization were never well publicized, but several sources indicate that there were disputes over creative control:

  • An October 1984 feature in Smash Hits magazine indicated that Morley and Horn planned for the group to produce a number of projects that were much different from what was produced after the split. Planned was a cover of "Video Killed the Radio Star" originally by The Buggles (Horn and Geoff Downes); Raiding The 20th Century, an album using sounds from throughout the 20th century as source material; the score for The Living End, a film written by Morley and directed by Godley & Creme; and the soundtrack for a ballet.[1]
  • On May 25, 1985, the trio reportedly walked out on Morley and Horn just before a ZTT showcase performance, The Value Of Entertainment, that was to run for two weeks at the Ambassadors Theatre in London. The sudden departure left Morley to improvise a performance consisting of him reading an essay over Art of Noise recordings, and three people dancing to "Beat Box" and "Close (to the Edit)".[2] Part of the spoken-word portion of the performance was subsequently released on a ZTT compilation album, Sampled.
  • In an interview for Melody Maker in October 1985, Jeczalik indicated that he and Morley didn't get along, and that he felt Morley's writing was pretentious. Jeczalik responded to a question about the level of Morley and Horn's involvement in Who's Afraid by saying, “It’s difficult to tell. We say approximately 1.73 percent, but it could even be as high as two percent. You see, all that has happened is that Gary and I started something, it was taken away, and we have taken steps to get it back.” In the same interview, Dudley indicated she felt parts of Who's Afraid were of dubious quality.[3]
  • In a July 2002 article penned for The Guardian, Morley wrote, I loved the name Art of Noise so much that I forced my way into the group. If over the years people asked me what I did in the group I replied that I named them, and it was such a great name, that was enough to justify my role. I was the Ringo Starr of Art of Noise. I made the tea. Oh, and I wrote the lyrics to one of the loveliest pieces of pop music ever–Moments in Love. When Trevor and I left, they became a novelty group who had hits with Tom Jones. His disdain for the artistic direction of the group when he wasn't in control of it was even more evident in other articles he penned, including the liner notes of the 1986 compilation album Daft (under the name Otto Flake), and a September 2002 article for The Observer.[4].

After the split, the remaining members moved to the UK-based China Records label, keeping some of the band's original imagery and ethos alive in their second album, In Visible Silence. This album spawned the Grammy Award-winning cover of the Peter Gunn theme, recorded with twangy guitar legend Duane Eddy reprising the lead rather than just being sampled. The Peter Gunn video featured comedian Rik Mayall sending up the private eye. From this same album, the "Beat Box"-like single "Legs" was a mild underground hit in dance clubs, and in 1986, "Paranoimia" achieved some success when a remix of it was released as a single with overdubbed vocal samples provided by the supposedly computer-generated character Max Headroom.

Around 1986, Jeczalik and Dudley started appearing in photographs without masks, alienating some fans that had come to appreciate Morley's "art for art's sake" aesthetic.

By 1987, the band's membership was down to just Jeczalik and Dudley. That year saw the release of their album In No Sense? Nonsense!. The album featured Jeczalik's most advanced rhythmic collages to date, plus lush string arrangements, pieces for boys' choir, and keyboard melodies from Dudley. It didn't score any hits, although their record label tried mightily to push remixes of "Dragnet" into the dance clubs. The album is often regarded by fans to be among their best work, despite the inclusion of arguably novelty tracks composed for the soundtracks of the movies Dragnet and Disorderlies. Less faithful critics, however, criticised the album for being too pretentious, and lacking in the humour and catchiness that characterised previous releases. The album contained amongst its tracks a piece that combined new age piano and the rapping of the Fat Boys ("Roller 1"). The Art of Noise appeared to have taken inspiration from fellow sonic collage artist Boris Blank (of Yello) with this track : though the melodic compositions are significantly different , it bears a striking resemblance to the programming used on Yello's "Let Me Cry".

Hits and misses

In 1988, a one-off collaboration with singer Tom Jones, a cover of Prince's "Kiss" (a staple in Jones' stage shows) renewed the public's interest in the Art of Noise and provided the group's biggest hit in the mainstream. The track appeared on several albums by Jones, and China Records included the song on the greatest hits compilation The Best of the Art of Noise, the first edition of which also contained tracks licensed from ZTT.

The follow up album, Below the Waste, failed to achieve much success upon its release in 1989. While it did spawn the memorable single "Yebo!", featuring the unique vocals of Zulu performers Mahlathini and the Mahotella Queens, and what appears to be a Mancini tribute in the form of "Robinson Crusoe", some critics felt the album was a hollow imitation of its predecessors, lacking the aesthetic and creative fullness of previous releases.

The rest of the decade saw China Records releasing various Art of Noise compilations: The Ambient Collection, The FON Mixes, The Drum and Bass Collection, Art Works, and reissues of Best Of without the ZTT-era tracks. Some of these featured new remixes by other artists. The China label eventually folded.

According to an interview with J.J. Jeczalik reported in the ZTT fanzine Outside World, in 1991, Jeczalik, Anne Dudley, and Gary Langan were inspired by the commercial success of The FON Mixes and had discussed reuniting the group as a trio again. In preparation to record a new album, J.J. and Gary traveled to Cuba to gather new source material. However, no new recordings were produced with the new lineup, and the Art of Noise remained defunct.

Theremin Vox - The Art of Noise (2104 words)
To attune noises does not mean to detract from all their irregular movements and vibrations in time and intensity, but rather to give gradation and tone to the most strongly predominant of these vibrations.
Noise in fact can be differentiated from sound only in so far as the vibrations which produce it are confused and irregular, both in time and intensity.
We therefore invite young musicians of talent to conduct a sustained observation of all noises, in order to understand the various rhythms of which they are composed, their principal and secondary tones.
