The main theme that I was struck by was simply that of imperfection and limitation adding up to something very intentional and careful. TMT is arguably the biggest site that really has a substantial focus on experimental and "noise" acts (a label that is quickly becoming, like "indie" and "alternative" before it, more about approach and attitude than sound), and the world that today's noise bands live in is one that is decaying. There's not a more accurate way to try and reflect back the condition of the first world these days, which can basically be divided into those fighting decline (Europe) moping about it (Japan) and living in spirited idiot denial (America). Either way, this mechanical bull is falling apart.

Sometimes it's impossible to put our feelings into words - feelings of otherworldliness, of expansiveness, of infinite possibility. Music is maybe the best way to get those thoughts out into the world, and give them form. But clearly, there are ways to do it visually, too.
