New Release on Bandcamp
noisiV is a collaborative project born in Berlin in 1999, involving Joffrey Guillon aka Androvirus and Seamus O'Donnell aka Lifeloop. In 2000 they were joined and for some years accompanied by frgmnt, a Berlin video artist, enriching the live performances with his unique system of video feedback. From the very rough beginnings of a no rules except for no beats dogma the project evolved to encompass more intelligent sound scape creations based on treated field recordings alongside the barrage of electronic instruments and various forms of magnetic tapes they had collected.
After a few intense years of production, performance and development Joffrey Guillon returned to France in 2002 and hence began a long distance relationship and a series of works achieved by correspondence. Using the internet to swap material several productions were realized (Booch of spells, Studid White Man must die). Live performances are still an important part of their agenda and have spanned most of mainland Europe so far. A typical live set could be any mixture of field recordings, self made devices, traditional instruments and voice. More recent releases have concentrated on the spontaneous creations during studio sessions.
More information about their solo projects and a link to online material can be found to the left.

This compilation maps the progression of 10 years in the life of the experimental music group, noisiV. The pieces have been chosen chronologically to demonstrate this progression and to provide a glimpse at the wider variety of methods of approach noisiV have used in their decade of survival.
Despite, or because, of the physical distance separating the members of noisiV, their productions have kept a haphazard regularity to them. Their live performances have been a little more frequent and have spanned most of mainland Europe so far. Between these meetings and the use of some online space for swapping material they have managed to nurture their baby even though they have expanded individually with other projects on different roads.
