About: Great Deal of Noise

Great Deal of Noise, Canada based three piece  electronic band from E103 of ArenaCast

They are playing together since 1996 and going to release new video and 2 more singles before spring this year. On the 2nd of March Great Deal of Noise performs in Montreal.

1. Is there a story behind your song Love Is Just A Sound?
Love Is Just A Sound is one of the rare songs that was created on a single jam session (though the verse has been added later on). The Lyrics means that love of music always made more sense than human love relationships!

2. What do you think of episode 103? Which of the other featured songs do you like the most?
Gotta love episode 103! It's awesome to hear so many talented bands from all around the world.

Super Squarecloud - super dirty à la Sonic Youth... both songs are awesome, really dig this band
The Cry Baby - very trippy
Grand Elk - Cool mood, very intense playing... must be nice to see live.

3. What bands from your country/city would you recommend to those who like your music?
We don't necessarily sound like these bands, but we like them and think you should have a listen.
Grimes | Beast | Karkwa | Wolf Parade

4. You have a distinct sound. Is there some "special" musical instruments or effects which you use to achieve it? What is the essence of your music, in your opinion?
A lot of time is spent finding the right sounds in order to make sure everything blends together as much as possible. It sounds easy, but sometimes it's even a matter of getting the right frequency, the right texture. Cerv spends a lot of time doing just that.
Although our drum tracks are mostly electronic (and in rare cases, samples like in LIJAS), we also use an electronic drum set (played by SnoozeX ) to humanize the patterns.
Another important factor is the use of a real bass instead of electronic bass lines. We believe it brings a more melodic approach when we create, but also some warmness to the songs.

5.What is your source of inspiration for composing music and writing lyrics?
Our inspiration takes multiple forms : it can be sounds, images and sometimes it takes a more liquid form. Mostly, it's our love of music, playing and composing with friends and last but not least, the feedback our fans and friends gives us...it's very nourishing.
