James Beckett & goodwill

This issue is by no means an attempt to write a history of noise or noise practitioners in music or otherwise.  It is a rough collection of fragments of actual circumstance and stands a provisional entry into a subject, being of interest in that information as sound is present and constantly leaking out of unlikely events; that which is unwanted often being the significant chunk, bringing light to the nature of the way we live.

This is research based on fact and a bit of speculation. In this sense we express such digging as muse
and not scientific resource.
