Collaboration is the cornerstone of musical exploration and development.  Creating actively with others is a way to enrich our own lives, and those of the people we connect with.  Rest/Noise is a vehicle for collaboration.

Rest/Noise: a performing arts collective focused on the interplay between contemporary music — with a heavy percussion influence — and interdisciplinary collaboration.  We take our name from the quintessential read on 20th-Century music The Rest is Noise by Alex Ross.  rest/noise is comprised of alumni from across many of boston's largest music schools including The Boston Conservatory at Berklee, New England Conservatory, UMASS Lowell, and UMASS Amherst.

This fall Rest/Noise is touring Michael Gordon’s Timber throughout the Greater Boston Area.  The costs associated with presenting, producing, and licensing all aspects of performance are extensive (details in the link provided). please consider donating to local music/live music/percussion music by visiting this link.
