Who wants to form a synth noise collective to collaborate on experimental unlistenable bleep bloops?!?!

I like recording vocals and non-melodic brass instrument farts and then distorting them to the point where the whole thing sounds like a robot vacuum cleaner inside the belly of a whale that tries to sing like a broken theremin while floating in outer space. So, if that sounds good to you...

Depends on what you mean by "unlistenable". :)

For those not in the know, he entered as Swedish Masturbation Unit.

I always thought his stuff was pretty listenable, myself, just bizarre. For unlistenable noise crap there's always Lightning Ear Fart and Kokiri Warriors.

No. But I'd try to listen (just to see if it could be done) if y'all actually gave it a go.

I was entertained by this, especially by the dystopian horror in part 2.

I released an entire album of music without any steady time or key signatures, almost entirely procedurally generated using stochastic composition techniques. Does it fit as part of the synth noise collective? I then missed, y'know...songwriting. So I came back to songfight. :p

How did you procedurally generate it?

A couple different MIDI APIS. Some of them utilized javax.sound.midi -- those I came up with the algorithms to create the rhythms in Clojure. The others were done using the Perl::MIDI library available on CPAN, and those I wrote using Perl.

Once I created an arbitrarily strange .mid file based on whatever algorithm I was messing with on a given evening, I'd then import it into FL studio, typically mapping one channel to a snare (as resonant and pingy as possible usually) and another to a kick (usually distorted), then usually add some sort of synth line, typically 12-tone or microtonal because harmony is for jerks.

Then add in some screeching high frequency square waves, nature samples (the bird cacophony at the end of my "Pocket Full Of Bones" came from that sample collecting spree), and whathave you and you've got...whatever that album is. It's on bandcamp in my sig.

It was kind of fun, even if the end-result basically turned into Autechre gone gabba. Hard to sustain a project like that for super long without getting burnt out though.
