noise: 1. loud or unpleasant sound.
  -The Merriam Webster® Pocket Dictionary: Fourth Edition. 1989.

In communications systems theory, there is generally at least
one other factor to considered. Noise is often defined as that
which interfers with a message. However, it is also the case
that one person's noise can be another person's art.
Therefore, noise may not, necessarily, always be a bad thing.
Some places within this work will be a celebration of noise.
