Ideas of Noise is the meeting point of the practices of sound artist/violinist Sarah Farmer and musician/composer Andrew Woodhead. Through a mixture of performance, installation, intervention and curation, IoN creates live and digital experiences which intersect the worlds of improv, electronica, sound art, noise, contemporary classical and experimental music.

So far IoN has primarily manifested as a festival, creating opportunities for West Midlands artists working with experimental sound practices to come together, share and show off their work alongside national and international names. But it is also more than that, IoN is a framework for all things sound experiment, with a multi-discliplinary interest. It can be an ensemble, a producer, a collaboration, an artwork in it’s own right and more. It is in itself an experiment of live sound practice and the multitude of forms that can take.
