Actually, analog noise is completely different than digital noise.
But of course each can be used to their own ends, which I think is
your real point. At least the one interesting to me.

There are lots of people who would consider a statement like this
completely absurd. Me included. But here are some examples of
composition and composers I think of when I think of "noise":

John Cage
Elliott Sharp
Keiji Haino
John Oswald
Jean Dubuffet
Steve Moore
George Katzer
Lutz Glandien
the entire genre of Musique Concrete
