Art Of Noise

Anne Dudley, Gary Langan, and Paul Morley were members of producer Trevor Horn's in-house studio band in the early '80s before they formed the Art of Noise, a techno-pop group whose music was an amalgam of studio gimmickry, tape splicing, and synthesized beats. The Art of Noise took material from a variety of sources: hip-hop, rock, jazz, R&B, traditional pop, found sounds, and noise all worked their way into the group's distinctly postmodern soundscapes.

Dudley was the center of the group, having arranged and produced material for Frankie Goes to Hollywood, ABC, and Paul McCartney before forming the Art of Noise. The trio signed with Trevor Horn's ZTT label, releasing their first EP, Into Battle With the Art of Noise, in 1983. The following year, the group released the full-length (Who's Afraid Of?) The Art of Noise!, which featured the hit single "Close (To the Edit)."

After "Close (To the Edit)," the group parted ways with Horn and ZTT, releasing In Visible Silence in 1986; the album included the U.K. Top Ten hit "Peter Gunn," which featured Duane Eddy on guitar. Re-works of the Art of Noise, an album of remixes and live tracks, was released that same year. In No Sense? Nonsense!, released in 1987, saw the band experimenting with orchestras and choirs, as well as horns and rock bands. The next year, the Art of Noise released a greatest-hits collection, The Best of the Art of Noise, which featured their collaboration with Tom Jones on Prince's "Kiss."

Below the Waste (1990) captured the band experimenting with world music; it received a lukewarm critical and commercial reception. The following year, a low-key remix album directed by Killing Joke's Youth called The Ambient Collection appeared. Later in the year, the Art of Noise broke up. Dudley eventually worked with Killing Joke's Jaz Coleman and Phil Collins. Horn, Dudley, and Morley reunited in 1999 for a new album, The Seduction of Claude Debussy. Kevin Godley and Lol Creme were added to the lineup. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Timeless....
I simply can not express in words how much I love the music produced by this group!!!

I recall this sample used on Bone Thugs and Tech N9ne tracks... beautiful, versatile, simple.
Relaxing
Genius work of instrumental noise... All time
Moments in Love is by far one of the greatest instrumental s ever

Along with Love. This is just awesome. Yeah!!

Kool & The Gang is a similar artist?

I'm in love with the story of Debussy! How exciting does it get when the narrator sounds like Anthony Hopkins, and the female vocalist, her range is outstanding! It will grow on u, trust me.
Thr pure talent that was involved is mind blowing thankful for good music
I grew up listening to them. My favorite is moments of love, and Love. This song will never get old
This song never grows old.... Totally mind blowing!

Just got introduced to this song, must own it......love it nuff said.
brianzas
this is really a stretch... Moments in bed??? How many different versions of the same song, Moments in Love have they put out? As an artist, this seems like a desperate attempt to market this musical production. I like the original... No need for clones!
miss my smooth jazz radio station.

First heard this song by mistake while watching class act years ago. My pops turned me on to great musical pieces like this. Many try to duplicate this but can't.
It seems like this was the first band that did techno music before techno was around. Are maybe I'm wrong!
Moments in love is totally off the chain!!!!
This is a great tune baby making music.
No matter the mood this song right here changes it
Love this song
I love it and can't get enough of it. What a sensual and exhilarating song..
I love this track, this tack brings back some awesome memories. Can't get enough
Got pregnant on this song back in 84, now my daughter is 28yrs old. And i still love this song..
