Side by Side is a compilation of rare and unreleased tracks by Noir Age artists' side projects. This compilation commemorates the 50th release from the Noir Age label.

Our family of outer-sound practitioners living and working within a darkened hue of sonic mind alteration. Textures and patterns, apparition and essence, temper and love, streaks of night rain and shards of sunlight, rooms and machines, under noiseless clouds at the very edge of things. This is Side By Side.

A very special thanks to all the artists and listeners who have made this possible with their continued support.
