Back on the shelfs – Who’s afraid of the Art of Noise
Art of Noise’s “Who’s afraid of the Art of Noise?” is being re-released in a deluxe edition 2-disc set holding a CD and DVD via the Salvo/ZTT label. This re-release includes a number of tracks from 2 BBC Radio Sessions and a full-length bonus-DVD. The 1984 released “Who’s afraid of the Art of Noise?” was the the first album of Art of Noise, the legendary project founded by Trevor Horn, Paul Morley and the session musicians Anne Dudley, J.J. Jeczalik and Gary Langan.
Considered to be a pioneer in electronic music and sampling, the Art of Noise used technology to rework the same recordings many times over, a novel approach at the time. Although only a relatively small amount of original material was commercially released during the project’s active periods (1983, 1989 and 1998, 2000), the Art of Noise’s legacy includes scores of reissues, remixes, and compilations of previously released and unreleased material.
