Art of Noise (also The Art of Noise) were an avant-garde synthpop group formed in 1983 by engineer/producer Gary Langan and programmer J. J. Jeczalik, along with arranger Anne Dudley, producer Trevor Horn and music journalist Paul Morley. The group's mostly instrumental compositions were novel melodic sound collages based on digital sampler technology, which was new at the time. Inspired by turn-of-the-20th-century revolutions in music, the Art of Noise were initially packaged as a faceless anti- or non-group, blurring the distinction between the art and its creators. The band is noted for innovative use of electronics and computers in pop music and particularly for innovative use of sampling.
The name of the group alludes to the essay "The Art of Noises" by noted futurist Luigi Russolo. From the earliest releases on ZTT, the band referred to itself as both Art of Noise and The Art of Noise. Official and unofficial releases and press material use both versions. The group is perhaps best known currently for the international Top 20 singles "Kiss" and "Peter Gunn", the latter of which won a 1986 Grammy Award.
"Moments In Love," a ten-minute downtempo/R&B instrumental ode to sensuality that appeared on both Into Battle and Who's Afraid, was remixed and released as a single in 1985. The song was first released in the USA in 1983, where it was a moderate hit on the U.S. R&B singles chart. It was played at Madonna's wedding; sampled by Mýa in her hit single "It's All About Me," which featured Sisqó; used in the soundtrack of the movie Pumping Iron II: The Women; featured in the Indian movie Koi...Mil Gaya; name-dropped in the opening pages of Sister Souljah's 2011 novel Midnight and the Meaning of Love (as "Moments of Love"); used in a number of advertisements; and remixed, covered, and sampled by numerous other artists years afterward. It has also appeared in numerous chill out compilations and has become a staple of smooth jazz radio station playlists.

I only have one source vob file for this upscale so I had to do the best I could with it. Quality was passable for such an old low res video even though it was plagued by the usual problems. The two main ones was dirty fizz and bad light/color. I have removed most of the dirt from the image and stopped when the video image started to degrade. The little bit of fizz left is barely noticeable. I also found this video a bit too dark and so I have increased the lighting and tweaked the colors. This in turn brought out more hidden details in the video. There are a few other defects in the video but I have decided not to touch them as it would have destroyed the image further and besides that most of you won't even notice. What was possible to enhance has been enhanced and sharpened in the scale to HD resolution. Without a better source file it is not possible to go any further.
Audio was dull and there's far more life in a dead corpse. So the crappy audio has been replaced with a good quality stereo digital file from my library that has been tweaked slightly.
This is the best quality online for this Art Of Noise video from so long ago and I hope you enjoy it!
Be aware that some evil people will download my clip restorations, upload them to their own channel and then try to take credit for my hard work. They will even go so far as to say I stole it from them! What goes around comes around and they are storing up some very bad 'karma' for themselves. While I do not own the rights to the music or the videos themselves it is my hard work in restoring these old gems for your enjoyment that is being compromised by any such attempts at smearing my reputation. If you spot these people then let them know that you are aware that they are nothing but liars and losers.
PLEASE NOTE: If I catch you taking one of my clips and passing it off as your own upload I will ban you permanently without warning. If you want to add my clips then add them as favorites in a playlist for your channel.
