"Joke Lanz was born in Basel, Switzerland in 1965. In 1989 he created the noise music - performance, art - installation project Sudden Infant in connection with the Schimpfluch-Gruppe art collective.
For more than 20 years Lanz has been one of the most prolific and profound artists working in the border zones between performance/body art and improvisation/noise.
Noise In My Head documents Lanz's myriad activities and features: photos from installations, performances and actions; visual works (drawings and paintings); poetry and manifestos; a visual discography,
reproductions of concert posters and flyers; new essays by Rudolf Eb.er, Leif Elggren, Daniel Menche, Steve Underwood, Mark Wharton, and Drew Daniel, as well as an in-depth interview with Joke Lanz himself.
Noise In My Head is a portrait of a remarkable artist, but also offers insight into the noise music underground Lanz has been working with for over two decades. Hardcover, 160 pages (16 in colour) and limited to 300 copies"
