1_ The Noise and Hardware Caravan Club is the imagined love child of a night club, a caravan park and a forgotten sound archive.

2_ The Noise and Hardware Caravan Club is a distant homage to the hazy, strange, sensorial qualities of the holiday park and the sleepy rave.

3_ The Noise and Hardware Caravan Club is scraps of previous works, recordings and discarded sketches, cherished trash objects, hybrid instruments, neon lights, virtual simulation and cloud gazing.

4_ The Noise and Hardware Caravan Club is a kind of sticky ambient mess around the five performing musicians of the Schallfeld Ensemble.

5_ The Noise and Hardware Caravan Club is acoustic and electronic, real and virtual, plastic and ephemeral.

6_ The Noise and Hardware Caravan Club is tinged with the indulgences of biography and the uncanny surface beauty of fake realities.

7_ The Noise and Hardware Caravan Club is an assemblage of my own sonic and visual tastes, past and present, this in the form of a strange, but hopefully familiar dream.
