Ben Ramsay is a lecturer in music technology at Staffordshire University, and part of the university's unique research centre, maximising the integration of media knowledge, technology, creativity and craft skills.
Ben says: "This is our third year and what started out as quite a small scale event has really grown and developed in the past two years.
"We are attracting some high profile and well respected composers and artists from across the UK, Europe and even as far as Thailand.
"We want the festival to be inclusive so invite anyone who may have an interest in electronic music."
And for those people who are unfamiliar with the differing forms of electronic music, Ben explains: "Just picture an orchestra of loud speakers and that will give you the right idea."
Noise Floor festival is at Staffordshire University, Beaconside campus, Stafford, from Tuesday, May 1 to Friday May 4. For a programme of events visit www.noisefloor.co.uk
