Joan of Arc began in 1996 with the clear goal of creating “music for no audience.” We were all constant and voracious consumers and keen observers of all these underground music scenes contemporary at the time: hardcore, punk, post-punk, post-rock, riot girl, emo, math rock, no wave, noise, experimental, drone, free jazz, kraut rock, dub, glitch, drum and bass, psych, folk, and twee. Each of these scenes had its own codes of membership and conformity. So we set out knowing that our failure to be embraced by any prefab audience would be the proof of the singularity of our expression.
