slowly updating ........ NOOD is a project dedicated to the noble purpose of conceiving, processing and looping sound resources from the net- and meatspace. Nood released the first-ever internet CD "HETTYNETTLETTY" early '96, a glam mixture of lo-fi grooves, chaotic jazz breaks and strange ethnic sounds mixed with impressions from brickspace and acoustic instruments such as guitar, dictaphone, and the indian pump organ. Ulvers (ulf knudsen) and Pepe (per platou) ARE NOOD.

Nood recently teamed up with Go Nood! in Australia. They make funky wear (chicks dig it). Have a look at their selection of great t-shirts, ski hats, caps, frisbees, stickers.....

Nood supports the EFF Open Audio Licence. This practically means that you can download/copy/remix/cut/paste or whatever everything from these pages, but please read the licence first, give credit where credit is due and support the action. Just a little warning: Lots of the audio stuff is not cleared, so prepare for legal battle, esp. if you plan to make a #1 hit (easy with all these great songs).

Check out the sound page for REALAUDIO tracks. Also featuring almost all the samples from "HETTYNETTLETTY". The whole album - 74 mins. - can be streamed in RealAudio format HERE, courtesy of our friend and collaborator Dean Frederick Radioactive Whitbread in London.


on dec. 18th 2000, senior members of the norwegian record industry association initiated a new "replacement category" while listening to the nominees for 2001's Norwegian Grammy Award (Spellemannsprisen). A special price (for being totally mad..?) was awarded to NOOD and their label DBUT for "Shaped like a Taco". Read more about it in PULS - sorry, only norwegian...
