A spontaneous or considered combination of acoustic and electronic sound generated within a given space in conjunction with projected visuals. Noun is the result of collaboration between the two individuals Ben Gaydos and Matt Klimas.
We are pleased to announce that Noun seen in their people skins on 6 June 2008 (a first Friday opening) at Gallery 5 in Richmond, Virginia. Come see the art! Come see the sound! We will be playing in conjunction with an animated installation piece. Fun is sure to be had by all. Due to some geographic shifting taking place, this may be the last chance to witness Noun in Richmond for a while. Don’t miss it!
Hey look! It’s an album! Culled from our first few experimental sessions in different apartments and spaces in Richmond, Solvent is a tasty snapshot of an emergent process. It’s a record made with sweat and smiles. We hope you find it enjoyable.

Noun can be experienced in person on 11 April 2008 at Gallery 5 in Richmond, Virginia. along with many talented sound-makers (Shenanigans.tv, Ilad). Lend an ear and say hello! Also look out for the VJ team of Sloth&Owl, who look surprisingly similar to certain nounish folk. It’s $3 and happens at 8 o’rock, so whatch waitin’ fer?
This happened in the summer of 2007. Friend/family/filmaker Julia Yezbick shot video and we recorded everything we could find. Then we played and put everything together. A fond farewell to our graduate studio space. <sniff>
Noun performed a live score to the silent classic “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari.” Someone forgot to hit the record button, so you’ll just have to imagine how awesome it was. Ben took a photograph; Matt made a poster.
