Interestingly, I've never thought of noise (in this context) as being
entirely negative. Then again, ever since I discovered my dad's old
reel-to-reel and began experimenting with loops (many, many years ago) I've
been captivated by noise (aka sound). I think the term "Ambient Guitar
Noise" is extremely descriptive of what I do. Not only does it point out
the instrument of origin, but it illustrates the dichotomy of textures that
one could experience while listening to my performance/tape......"ambient"
being on the quiet/peaceful end of the spectrum and "noise" being on the
more aggressive/chaotic end of the spectrum. And it never fails to cause
people to stop and think...if only for a second.
