Bill Noertker has been an active member of the Bay Area music and composing scene for the last fourteen years. He studied jazz history and theory in the early '80's with Bobby Bradford, Ornette Colman's first trumpet player. He began composing under the tutelage of Albert Ryz-Ryzky in the band Bardo in the late 80's. In 1989, he and other members of Bardo formed the After the End of the World Coretet (AEWC) as a forum for their compositional and improvisational ideas. The AEWC has released 3 recordings and continues to perform a unique style of jazz. Currently, Noertker is the bassist for the Lords of Outland.

Noertker has collaborated with dancers, composing music for ODC's "Pilot Project", and for "Liberty's Breast." He is currently composing music and seeking funding for two projects, "Angels and Acrobats," a jazz ballet inspired by Rainer Maria Rilke's Duino Elegies, and "San Francisco Suite," tone portraits of San Francisco neighborhoods.
