noise gate number four

No4 release date Aug 1996

Articles included, Pyrotechnic Sound, On the psycology of timbral development in western music, Noisy Audiences, Perception of 3D Space in Music, Ken Hyders look at Siberian Throat singing, and reviews of Bastiaan Maris with his hot pipes and Birdyak.

Despite being a 'mere' fanzine, Noise gate has a better handle on developments. If its critical vocabulary is sometimes a little limited, it's at least open-minded, with an interest in wider cultural issues related to sound and two communities usually having little contact. The latest issue deals with audience noise, solar radio emissions, digital recording frequencies (slightly misleading, this one), spatial perception of music, how to release a DIY record and more. the wire
