Joke Lanz was born in Basel, Switzerland in 1965. In 1989, he created the noise music/performance art/installation project Sudden Infant in connection with the Schimpfluch-Gruppe art collective. For more than 20 years, Lanz has been one of the most prolific and profound artists working in the border zones between performance/body art and improvisation/noise. NOISE IN MY HEAD documents Lanz’s myriad activities and features:

• Photos from installations, performances, and actions
• Visual work including drawings and paintings
• Poetry and manifestos
• A visual discography
• Reproductions of concert posters and flyers
• New essays by Rudolf, Leif Elggren, Daniel Menche, Steve Underwood, Mark Wharton, and Drew Daniel
• In-depth interview with Lanz himself

Noise In My Head is a portrait of a remarkable artist, but also offers insight into the noise music underground Lanz has been working within for over two decades.
