JOURNAL OF POPULAR NOISE
Created by Byron Kalet as a response to the current state of the music industry, particularly its rapid digitalization. The journal seeks to reinforce, all the while challenging, the coupling of design and the visual arts with recorded sound as it has traditionally been found in commercial LPs. In its most basic form, the concept of the magazine is to apply the structure of a pop song to that of a magazine, and vice versa. As such, "The Journal of Popular Noise" maintains a standard form both visually and musically; specifically, each volume comes in the same clamshell style package with three records, all of which contain five tracks. The editors have set varying guidelines (style, dynamic, structure, etc.) for the construction of each song. Volume 1 consists of three 7" records featuring the work of Dutch Dub, Foscil, and Ones along with a signed letter from the editor and information about the artists". The issue of volume 2 feature the work of Teflon Don (Devin Welch), Copy (Marius Libman), and Pontius Pilots (Victor Noriega and Robert Nelson)".
