“If you are not familiar with noise as an art form — it’s a different way of appreciating and creating sound, with a decidedly idiosyncratic hands-on approach, often leading to unique and profound results,” Bob Bellerue explains on the Ende Tymes IV Festival of Noise and Experimental Liberation IndieGoGo campaign page. The venue/artist studio complex Silent Barn is hosting the third annual event featuring some of the best noise artists in the world. Your artist preview video is below. Headphones are recommended.

Hosted by SILENT BARN and OUTPOST ARTISTS RESOURCES, ENDE TYMES IV will present more than 40 NATIONAL and INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS over the course of 4 NIGHTS. ENDE TYMES presents a wide variety of STREET-LEVEL EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC and NOISE ART: HARSH NOISE, AVANT-GARDE, DRONE, MODULAR SYNTHESIS, and our personal favorite “UNCLASSIFIABLE”

This is an intense event that some of us care about quite intensely, so any help would be great. Working with Outpost Artist Resources, the festival is also taking submissions of single-channel video works, recommended at 2 to 15 minutes in length. The theme is “sound vision” — “sound as integral component of the conceptual / thematic / technical video material.” Submit to video@halfnormal.com
