The Art Of Noise: Part One

Dev heads out on a two-part journey to the most extreme and experimental music festivals, labels and musicians on the planet to find out at what point 'noise' becomes 'music'.

Hear what happens when Radio 1's Queen of experimental sounds Mary Anne Hobbs takes one electronic music NOOB (aka Dev) under her musical wing.

Dev boasts on air that he reckons he can produce an experimental music track (how hard can it be, it's just a load of beeps and clicks, right?) so now he's on a mission to make a tune good enough for Mary Anne to play on her show.

We join him on his journey of discovery - as he looks for inspiration from Aphex Twin & underground label Planet Mu AND is introduced to cutting edge Dubstep and extreme D&B.

His quest for harder, darker, faster, scarier sounds finally takes him to a warehouse in North London where, in the studio, he meets some of the notorious Wrong Music label crew (including: Tim Exile, Mully, and Ladyscraper)

After a session in the studio with producer Simbad, Dev finally finishes his track and is rather pleased with his efforts, but will it be enough to impress Mary Anne? And will she play his tune on Radio 1?
