1984-09-19 Art as Noise

It was a time before there were various sound and voice clips in music. Then, Art of Noise broke some real digital barriers to produce some memorable and unusual music. I really liked it and instantly understood that this would change music forever. Trevor Horn (picture at right) is the genius behind this, and I loved the way they mixed current themes (like the US intervention in Greneda) with popular dance music tinges.

Enjoy Art of Noise and other similar groups in this early exploration of what is now a very stock musical technique.
