Mike Patton to compose as ‘Noise Intoner’

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Mike Patton will be one of the many composers in “Futurism”, an avant-garde series hosted by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The composers will perform with “noise intoners”, instruments that produce “noises, explosions, howls, buzzes, hisses — not typically employed in Western music.” Further information is as follows:
