"Noise Forest is the latest performance project by the KGB trio, following 2008's release Smoke on Devil's Mountain; a recording comprised of performances and field recordings made at an abandoned NSA station in Berlin.

The Noise Forest environment was created in Berlin during the weeks before the two day long performance. Involving found objects, metal constructions, machines, contact microphones and various traditional instruments. The Audience was invited to enter the environment from above through a ladder leading from Chef Manuel Czech's kitchen.

Founded in 2004, KGB makes music using digital, electrical and acoustic instruments, creating music incorporating field recordings and processing, and performs as a trio and with an orchestra of improvising musicians. The Swiss Pharmaceuticals CD was released in 2005 on Utech records.
