What's New?

here's how its done folks, lets get to work!

The number of (areacode) noise collectives much like the one known as
804noise in Richmond, Virginia are growing in the United States.  The
largest concentration being in the southeast where communities are pulling
like minded individuals together in sprawling sub-urban landscapes such as
Hickory, North Carolina's 828noise and even closer in some of the more
urban areas such as Atlanta's 404noise.  It has recently moved even
further west with the birth of Houston's 713noise.

What is (areacode)noise?

(areacode)noise, founded on community and mutual aid instead of scene and
posturing, is an autonomous grassroots movement designed to bring
experimental and noise communities together under the guise of their local
area code.

There is no physical model of how an (areacode)noise collective should
operate, for each city has a personality of its own. The most important
aspect of an (areacode)noise collective which must always be preserved is,
they should always be open to the public, community operated, & a safe
place against sexism, ageism, ablism, racism, classism, sizism, &
homophobia. And all decisions should be made collectively.

Formed by the founding memebers of the Richmond experimental collective
804noise [ ] in the December of 2001, the intention
was to create or influence a network of experimental communities based on
the area codes of individual cities. These communities world provide local
artists and enthusiast with the tools for building a strong and healthy
experimental community. A community where like minds can meet and combine
individual resources to bring experimental media to the forefront.

If you're interested in starting an (areacode)noise collective in your
city, email [ ] and let us know about your collective
so we can list you on the ACNOISE hub [ ]. You can also
