SoundNoise began as a trio with vocalist Fay Victor, drummer Reggie Nicholson and soprano saxophonist Sam Newsome. The idea being a free improvisational unit where the members are composers with deep knowledge of structure yet a penchant and affinity to explore this and more sonic and nameless terrain within the sound world created in realtime. SoundNoise went on to perform at the Vision 21 in 2016 making it a quartet with the addition of Melvin Gibbs on bass guitar. The electric performance got everybody on their feet with a standing ovation.
SoundNoise will soon record a project for the legendary ESP - Disk record label.
