“Noise Truck” is an interactive community project that will bring the sounds of the avant-garde, free improvisation, poetry and other sonic projects to the city of Houston. Live experimental sound performances will be broadcast throughout the city from inside an altered commercial van. “Noise Truck” is intended to provide guerrilla concerts throughout Houston’s landscape while raising questions about the city’s noise ordinance codes, specifically what qualifies as acceptable noise? The unsanctioned use of sound in public spaces is intended to disrupt and destroy internalized behavioral codes and stakes a claim for a more democratic use of public space.
