For over 20 years, STC creator, curator and conductor Naut Humon has been staging underground events which have inverted and blurred the roles of audience and participant. Naut Humon was the primary catalyst, producer, arranger and performer of Rhythm and Noise. He later founded Sound Traffic Control in 1991 with two intentions: first, to replace Rhythm and Noise’s group form by a more flexible collective; and second, to focus on using an orchestral setting to explore three-dimensional space.
Throughout the years, along with his own electroacoustic excursions and products Naut has collaborated with dozens of artists and musicians of numerous influences, disciplines and styles. His investigative processes and the interaction of this diverse combination of performers is what makes Sound Traffic Control what it is today.
