Noise, I believe, is the end of pathway that a lot of genres extend into. Take, for instance, free improvisation, a form which involves participants playing off of each other with no set rules or regulations. Keith Rowe is from AMM, a band notorious for making some of the most challenging free improv music out there. No, it's not explicitly noise, but aided by Nakamura (who contributes a high pitch tone throughout) the comparisons are certainly there. It may not be the typical dark, sinister noise that you normally see posted here, but it certainly is something gripping, and noise fans will know what I mean. Listen closely, and you'll hear a breadth of unique sounds from this. Truly epic.
