Originally from Zane Merritt: Live At the Unity! in Buffalo, NY. (zanemerritt.bandcamp.com/album/live-at-the-unity-5-4-2013) The only difference is that this version is louder.

Meaningless Noise was composed in 2010 while I was studying at the Hartt School. It utilizes a metronome, preparation of the instruments with paper, a violin bow used on the guitar, a wooden rod on the bass string, and the improv power duo Zane Merritt and Ben Willis. The piece was entirely written out, but they knew what to do.
