WHAT A FUTURE IN NOISE IS: Started in July of 2008, A Future in Noise began as a place to discuss and promote the music that I (Marilyn Roxie) enjoyed; both artists that I had long been interested in, and new discoveries that I wanted to share. Along the way, I encountered the 5 contributors, Ian, Christiano, Fulmar Austen, Jonathan C., and Molecules, who have helped me in my mission through their posts, insights, and site promotion. A Future in Noise has grown quite a bit since the early days: we are proud to say the site is a part of the MOG Music Network, Ology (music.ology), the Hype Machine, and Elbo.ws, and listed at Totally Fuzzy, SEO Rock n' Roll, Captain Crawl, and SoundWord.
OUR PITCH: The Acclaimed, The Independent, The Obscure Past, Present, and... A Future in Noise. We're a team of young musician-bloggers writing about music past...present...and future. New release reviews, independent and obscure music highlights, and starter guides on specially recommended artists and music movements are just a few of our specialties, always written with passion.
