Introducing myself and my journal: George Orwell's Novel, 1984
Margaret Noble started her sound arts career working in the underground club community of Chicago. From 2002 to 2004, she traveled as a performance DJ throughout the United States and Mexico. In 2004, she branched out from dance floor DJing into more experimental interests and created a monthly sound arts showcase in Chicago called, “Spectacle.” Throughout this period she received multiple write-ups for her work as an artist and curator. From 2005 to 2007, she completed an MFA in sound art at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago. She now performs locally and nationally as an experimental composer.
Her collaborative works include sound for film, theater, dance and installation. These projects have screened in a variety of festivals internationally. In 2007, she received the Hayward Prize and International Governor’s Grant both for sound work. Her recent artist residencies include the MAK museum of Vienna, Austria and the Salzburg Academy of Fine Art. Currently, she works as a sound and mixed media instructor at High Tech High Media Arts in San Diego.
