Mike Schmidt is an electronic music composer and live performing artist known for creating improvisational rhythmic noise/music with an array of synthesizers, drum machines and effects hardware. Influenced by a plethora of musical styles ranging from minimal to extreme, he has performed at clubs/parties/festivals across Canada, the U.S. and Europe – primarily under the moniker: noCore.

noCore encapsulates an ongoing evolution of sonic exploration. Not one to be confined a specific style, live sets are generally tailored specific to the event, creating an eclectic and emotive aural environment, designed to move both the body and the mind.
