Tampa Bay musician Insecticide Lobotomy (IL) performs and creates noise by manipulating and combining a series of effect pedals and processors. Turning knobs on and off while adjusting oscillation, frequency, pitch and rhythm of the different effects, musicians like IL create a soundscape of squeals, clicks, drones and caustic noise. Certainly not unique in technique or attitude, IL serves as a great example of the growing noise community. Also, he crafts noise very elloquently compared to some of his contemporaries, while not being too sophisticated to bash it out with the best of 'em.
Basically performances like the Youtube video up above pose intrinsic questions about the very natures of music and expression themselves. Is this music? What is music? Who cares?...
