Noise: Noise: What’s That Noise?

The Boise Experimental Music Festival is profiled in the Boise Weekly:

The “experiment” in the inaugural Boise Experimental Music Festival in 2006 had almost as much to do with the event as it did with the kind of music showcased.

“This style of music emulates life,” organizer and improvisational musician Krispen Hartung said. “It’s like having a conversation.”

Now in its fourth year, Hartung has made some changes to the festival to try to bring in larger audiences than in years past. It’s now called the Boise Creative and Improvised Music Festival; it will include a panel discussion; several artists will exhibit and paint in mini galleries in the venues; events will take place at Neurolux and the El Korah Shrine Temple; an avant garde play in which an iPod and an analog tape recorder duke it out has been added to the mix; and from the time it starts at 3 p.m. on Friday, April 24, until it ends at midnight on Saturday, April 25, it’s all free. Hartung also added a locals-only showcase with performances by himself, Tim Andreae, Gretchen Jude, Stardust and Floomdorm.
