I'd be interested to know about the most bare bones, simplistic live set-ups people use for making noise/P.E./industrial, whether live or recording.

Obviously there is the classic microphone into amplifier route, but I'd like to know people's personal favourite simple method for creating a proper live set or recording, especially if this is one particular bit of gear or random object that gets a good range of sounds.

Hopefully that makes sense!

Ryan Bloomer, according to The Rita, once did a set with nothing but a piece of metal and two sets of brass knuckles.

I only used a broken mixer and two tape players during the noise gig I played I was the most satisfied with. And I could have done without one of the tape players.

That's pretty boring in my humble opinion. Like guys behind laptops.

I feel like samplers sort of undermine the principle of creating a live set from bare bones- though I guess I'm a total superficial hypocrite cos tape players don't bother me as much.

I'm devising a live set at the moment where my set up will just be a Korg volca keys through distortion pedals and my vocals through delay. It's a pretty versatile synth as the sounds you get are similar to the MS-20 so I think there's enough variation there to keep the set interesting.

These are cool responses, would love to hear more.

I didn't see this performance myself but I've told Daniel Menche only used electric wires connected to the PA that he would rub on his sweety body to create a noise assault. Urban legend or reality I don't know but he did go minimal.

EDIT. Remember which set it was suppose to be. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghqz84uSEAs Both weirdly minimal and expressive at the same time.

I once played a last-minute gallery show using mostly 3 x Danelectro Black Licorice in a row, and a cheap half broken vocal mic

Voice and tape player

Con-Dom style with a backing track? Or manipulating tapes/machine live?

All kinds of things to be done with that set up really but mostly it’d be vocal improvisations and tape fuckery into a mic or just acoustic. Might as well share this video where I’m using that set up for the first few mins

Worth commenting beforehand that I’m not really coming from a PE place but still, this is my bare bones!

YOL immediately comes to mind for minimal gear setups - there's another video on YouTube of this performance, but I recently discovered on a hard drive I was backing up a full version that I shot from a different angle: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DT1JVGMFNf8

I thought of YOL too

On of the greatest noise sets I saw back in the day was The Digitariat using a spoon and a walkman with the circuitry exposed, straight into a large amp :)

Christ almighty, that competes for best among the list and there are a handful of really good acts/bands there! And a "cover" of one of my fave AC/DC tunes, no less. Very PE if you ask me.

Bucket brigade delay and distortion, in a feedback loop.
