Abstract

Noise is ubiquitous, from the sound of cars in the street to the scrape of a cello bow on a string. Often noise is considered to be unwanted, an intrusion on an otherwise quiet life. Through a consideration of the thinking of Alain Badiou, and of the broad range of literature that deals with noise specifically, I dispute noise’s unwantedness, re-situating it as an integral, and therefore essential, part of being. The written portion of this project exists alongside a portfolio of compositions comprising solo and small chamber works together with a larger immersive-performance piece. The practice exists not as a complementary, but rather as an integral part of the research which posits that, as outlined by Badiou, truth is only attainable through the combination of philosophy and truth procedures.
