Noise on Parade CHILDREN'S MUSIC
In June 2005, more than 700 fourth graders stirred up one hell of a racket in downtown Brampton, Ontario, but since they were all underage, no arrests were made. The chaotic proceeding was part of the 3rd Annual Parade of Noises, the marching brainchild of experimental composer Richard Marsella (aka Friendly Rich), conceived as an alternative way to introduce young students to music. The recently released Parade of Noises 2005 CD includes performances from revered Canadian experimenters like John Oswald, Bob Wiseman, Aidan Baker, Matthew Boughner and the Singing Saw Symphony among the youngsters bashing out all kinds of enthusiastic mayhem.
