Insomnia Festival and dancer/choreographer Mari Bø initiated Noise Control in 2013. Later on Mari Bø implemented dancer and choreographer Silje Solheim Johnsen, musician and composer Gudmund Østgård. Together they wanted to do a dance performance with a focus on the perception of sound and how the different frequencies in the sound move a body.

With the performance Noise Control the audience are welcomed into the performance itself, where they can wander around to experience different sounds and different dancers. With the use of directional, parabolic and other speakers, the audience will notice that the sound changes as they walk around in the performance.

Following dancers take place in the performance:

Mari Bø
Silje Solheim Johnsen
Åsne Storli
Bao Andre Nguyen
Maria Landmark

Composition and music performance:
Gudmund Østgård

The piece premiered at Insomnia Festival 2014.
