Noisebringers was created by mistake. ("There are no mistakes, only happy accidents.” ― Bob Ross) "A large and loving family, which is most definitely not a cult", according to founding member Maria Sappho (pianist and non-composer). Other full-time members include Henry Mcpherson (pianist and meme artist) and Brice Catherin (your friendly elderly cellist next door).

"We can not tell you what we have to offer, as this is an improvisational concert. If you are unsure of what an improvisational concert might be, be assured you are asking the right questions." (Maria Sappho again.)

We bring noise (along) with care, love, patience, wittiness, and a range of exotic English accents since 2019. Enjoy.

2020 - Noisebringers 5

According to the Yorkshire Post, Yorkshire's second highest paid vice-chancellor in 2018 was Bob Cryan, of Huddersfield University, who earned a total of £385,000, including pension, according to data from the Office for Students. The luckiest postgraduate participant in this Noisebringers performance gets £15'000 a year, to which must be added an available allowance of £66.67 a year for travel expenses. If the value of the former is 25.55 times the value of the latter, a fact that no one can deny, we owe it to capitalism that managed to sell education instead of transmitting knowledge with benevolence from one generation to the other like humans used to do for thousands of years. Our way of fighting capitalism is to organise a conference for free, perform for free, use the facilities and gear offered by a capitalist university, and lengthily discuss the matter instead of burning down banks and industries, which remains a classic joke in most boards of executives. Then we will go back to our lives of begging, sorry, applying to some pathetic crumbs that capitalism trows at us sparingly in order to keep us asleep and dreaming of a fairer world. Meanwhile, enjoy the performance.
