People Who Do Noise

Pitchfork is offering online, in chapters, the full length film People Who Do Noise, a documentary about the underground music/noise scene in Portland, Oregon. The film includes some great performances as well as interviews with folks like Yellow Swans and Redglaer. My own likes tend towards more melodic stuff, with noise as texture, rather than noise as the raison d'etre, but I cannot deny the creativity and energy of these musicians. And their influence on experimental music is undeniable.
