Thurston Moore to lecture noisy kids about noise

It’s hard for most people to appreciate “noise” as music. I’ve taken my chances and more often than have to bow out, angry at myself for either wasting my time or failing to understand its value. Nevertheless, I do find the containment of noise interesting.

I guess the trick is to get ’em while their young, which is what Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) is attempting to do this Sunday when he will give a dissertation on white noise to children at the New York gallery Partners & Spade.


Ya gotta love Partners & Spade. This Sunday, April 11th, they will be hosting another session of their Avant Garde Preschool. Don’t expect any papier-mache animals. At 11:30 a.m., for a one-time “tuition” payment of 30 bucks, Thurston Moore will deliver a “Dissertation on White Noise” to kids ages 8-12. Sounds wild, eh? All proceeds go towards the arts program of PS 126.

Even though I’m not a parent, I’d love to take my kid to this thing. It would be a sort of punishment for the youngster. They’d have to sit through excruciating, yet challenging guitar feedback while I’d just try to get Thurston Moore to talk to me.
