1. Musicians may only bring things that modify sound, not make sound themselves.
2. Vocals are allowed, but any lyrics must be written in the studio time.
3. The tracks must only use noise sampled from the sculptures and the voice.
4. The tracks must be completed within each respective six hour session.
Concept by Joseph Bradley Hill inspired by Luigi Russolo’s 1913 Futurist manifesto “The Art of Noise” and his six classifications of noise - musicians selected by Marco Pini, Maddy O’Keefe, Joseph Bradley Hill & Bianca Scout.
