Acid Police Noise Ensemble
is an international collective of composers, visual artists, and performers based in The Hague, Netherlands. Their activities come from a mix of performance art, composition and improvisation, and involve an exploration of “noise” with all of the vague, multi-faceted beauty that it implies.

They have been active since 2010 and perform their multidisciplinary projects throughout Europe. These have included their hour-long, “One-Act Aktionist Chamber Opera” Potlatch, which was first seen at an evening of Neoist art in Worm, Rotterdam; and their three-hour 9/11 concert: Stockhausen Serves Terrorism: 10 Years Of Sodom And Gomorrah, held on 11 September 2011 - a collaboration with the political-art collective Anonynmous Stateless Immigrants. The event coincided with the physical release of their first record Extraordinary Renditions and the publication of the journal Much Too Much Noise.

Their latest performances have include collaborations with the composer Joseph Kudirka in the Delta Centre for Contemporary Art; the sound art exhibition Eavesdropping, curated by Matteo Marangoni at Villa Kabila; Stations and Tearjerker, two 45 minute sound/performance art events in Rotterdam; and a recent residency at Vrije Academie GEMAK, culminating in sixteen ritualized performances over a 24-hour exhibition opening.
