Page 27 is a noise/experimental group that has been active in Colorado since 1994.
Page 27 was created in 1994 by John Gross, John Rasmussen, and many others. The group formed together in the mid 90s when John and John were working together to make independent zines and decided to put some of those ideas to sound. Over the years the membership has changed with as many as 7 people in the group at one time. The current lineup is John Gross, John Rasmussen, and Michael Nowak. Many great people have played in Page 27 such as Todd Novosad, Christian Havener, Zack Tourje, Eric Lonan, Ezra Nye, and many others have added much to the group and changed the sound.
Page 27 creates noise/harsh noise/experimental music many different ways. When the group first began they used prerecorded tapes, tape loops, 4 track recorders, field recordings, cheap guitar effects, casio keyboards. For a few years Page 27 used circuit bent toys. Currently Page 27 uses samplers, laptops, pedals, custom electronics, lots of software audio effects, and a few audio effect VST plugins and applications written by John Rasmussen.
Page 27's sound changes from harsh noise, sound collage, to ambient drones.
Over the years and inspired by the No Fun Fest, John Gross, Todd Novosad, John Rasmussen created the festival Denver Noise Fest which has been running since 2010, click the link for more information. http://denvernoisefest.com/
