This paper documents the creation of the experimental concert series Noizemaschin!!, and the emergent model of live performance on which the series was built. Noizemaschin!! was created in response to the lack of a regular experimental music night in Perth, utilising an innovative format that emphasized variety. In an attempt tos tand out from the existing culture of experimental music, and experimental music performance, Noizemaschin!! billed itself as a noise gig, and reinforced this with a unique approach to curation, format, and community engagement. With Noizemaschin!! celebrating its fourth 'birth-a-versary' in 2015, this paper concludes with a discussion of the role we hope Noizemaschin!! will play in Perth's experimental music future.
