Lee Noble (b. 1983 Nashville, TN) is a composer and artist whose audio work has focused on the in-between places of music forms, where synthesizer composition and folk traditions start to meet. He is designer and co-founder of the label imprint No Kings, and he has has performed at venues and festivals throughout the US, Europe, and Japan including Sonihouse (Nara), MOCA’s Geffen Contemporary (Los Angeles), the Wire’s Adventures in Modern Music Festival (Chicago), Hopscotch Festival (Raleigh), Rewire Festival (Den Haag), and Issue Project Room (Brooklyn). His music has been released by Muzan Editions, Pale Blue Records, Bathetic Records, Hands in the Dark, Patient Sounds, and Moon Glyph among others. He currently lives and works in Minnesota.
Carolee Schneeman (talking about her film “Fuses”) describes being “free in a process which liberates our intentions from our conceptions”. By meditating on an improvised action for a sustained period, in this case playing a synthesizer and delay pedal, I hope to approach this state.
At a point, engaging with music can transcend circumstance and become an entry point to an open plane, where author and audience have the same freedom and responsibility.
