christoph cox on approaching 'noise music'

“You have to get inside the music, rather than hearing it as something that has a progression,” says Christoph Cox when asked how audiences can approach noise music—which he describes as part of a series of musics that are “more immersive than narrative.” Rather than listening for more traditional elements of musicality like form and structure, Cox finds that noise music offers an opportunity for listeners to experience new sonic experiences that present intensive textural movements.
