For ICA Live! on Friday, May 1, Noble will present three sound sculptures with which visitors are invited to interact. To make the pieces, Noble used a filing box filled with index cards rigged with individual audio; an old leather suitcase with interior compartments that emit sound when uncovered; and a hand-activated music box – each of which Noble has fashioned into what she calls “resonating objects.” By cranking knobs, lifting lids, and pressing buttons, the objects will produce various sounds. “I use found objects, construct new objects and design sounds to activate spaces, reference history and pose questions about perception,” says Noble.

Noble received an MFA in Sound Art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and a BA in Philosophy from University of California, San Diego. Her solo exhibitions have been featured at Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego and Ohrenloch der Geäuschladen Sound Gallery in Berlin. In 2014, Noble was awarded first place in the Musicworks Magazine electronic music composition competition.
