Saw Merzbow and Oren Ambarchi do an hour set last night in Sydney. It was the most intense (sonically) gig I've ever seen. And I've seen the Backstreet Boys!

 

Couldn't resist gear shots. Surprisingly simple setups for the amount of noise produced. Merzbow had a JCM900 and Ampeg stack, Ambarchi had two Ampeg stacks and a Leslie cab.

 

Ambarchi...

Doesn't Oren have another load of pedals on the floor too?


I seem to remember him using a Boomerang + at one point...

 

 

Yeah, he had a Whammy, a Zvex fuzz, volume pedal, octave down fuzz and the speed selector for the Leslie

I feel like every noise act uses a mixer of some sort.


What am I missing?
:idk:

 

They get their wall of noise by running oscillators, noise generators, laptop into different channels, pan them and are able to fade different layers in and out. A mixer is a huge part of noise making.
