    Rest/Noise Concert
    8:00 PM

    Rest/Noise is a performing arts collective that takes its name from the quintessential read on 20th-Century music The Rest is Noise by Alex Ross; this name was gratefully approved by Mr. Ross. It focuses on the interplay between digital media, live audio processing, acoustic percussion & other instruments, and theater; essentially, fusing contemporary music — with a heavy percussion influence — with contemporary artists of any medium. Seeking to bring together diverse artists from the Greater Boston Area, Rest/Noise has an affinity for the work of artists such as David Lang, Michael Gordon, electronic music, Steve Reich, John Cage, Radiohead, Sigur Rós, Explosions in the Sky, Robert Honstein, Jordan Munson, and more.
