AC CHAMBER PROJECT : New String Sounds presents String Noise

String Noise is New York's most daring violin duo. Their first feature album “The Book of Strange Positions” was released on Northern Spy Records in November 2015. Tiny Mix Tapes describes this collection of original works and arrangements by Eric Lyon of Bad Brains, Violent Femmes, Deerhoof, Radiohead, and Black Flag as a “mix of classic punk covers and ZERO APOLOGIES.”

The Decline of Western Civilization, directed by Penelope Spheeris, chronicles the Los Angeles punk rock scene between 1979 and 1980. String Noise (Conrad Harris and Pauline Kim Harris, violins) will play the film's soundtrack live in concert, featuring music by BLACK FLAG, GERMS, CATHOLIC DISCIPLINE, X, CIRCLE JERKS, ALICE BAG BAND and FEAR. They called upon 16 different composers from around the country to arrange the film's 23 songs for two violins. Watch the early LA punk bands on screen and hear the avant-punk arrangements of the songs played live by String Noise – a whole new experience.
