ABOUT MAKE NOISE
Make Noise was founded in 2008 by Tony Rolando, a self-taught electronic musical instrument designer who got started by obsessively reading amateur radio books at the public library, building electronics for artists, such as the light controlled mixer for Simon Lee’s “Bus Obscura,” working for Moog Music, and playing in bands for many years. After 3 years of isolation on a mountain top he founded Make Noise. What started as a re-visioning of jettisoned music technology has grown into a crew of folks working together in Asheville, NC, to design and build some pretty strange, but thoughtful modular synthesizers. We see our instruments as a collaboration with musicians who create once in a lifetime performances that push boundaries and play the notes between the notes to discover the unfound sounds. We want our instruments to be an experience, one that will require us to change our trajectories and thereby impact the way we understand and imagine sound. Also, we think what we do is fun and we hope you like it, too.
ABOUT 103.3 ASHEVILLE FM
Asheville FM is nonprofit, volunteer-driven, community radio at its best. We offer a diversity of programming as diverse as the community we serve. That includes community journalists producing hyper-focused local news in both English and in Spanish; talk shows that run the gamut from politics to pet care; and the most eclectic freeform mix of music that you can hear – from DJs with a scholarly appreciation for the genres they represent. All of this is from a community of passionate volunteers who want to give the microphone to other members of the community who don’t have the opportunity in other media outlets.
