"Lee Noyes (b. 1977 Burns Lake, British Columbia) improvising musician, instrumentalist and composer of sound-works, working in multifaceted ways within experimental music, noise, free improvisation and in the rather singular field dubbed 'Harsh Silence'¹. Works primarily with feedback systems, piano and percussion.
In the exploration of pure sound [noise] electronic and acoustic, Noyes seeks to reveal through dedicated focus on the art of listening, humanist ideals in a celebration of dialogue, communication and collaborative activity. A "sensitive and alert improviser"², his music has been described as "minimalism at its most moving, heart-sweeping best. For connoisseurs... a cornucopia of abundant sounds"³
A long-time resident of Dunedin, New Zealand now based in Gothenburg, Sweden, he has performed across Australasia and in Europe and had music published on various labels in Europe, Scandinavia, North America and Australia. Latest release, Threhhlasb Andng Nmer, with Miguel A. Garcia and David Gómez is available now on Tanzprocesz."-Lee Noyes Website
