LUIGI RUSSOLO THE ART OF NOISES PDF

In the early years of the 20th century, Milan was in thrall to Futurism. Among the early members of the Futurist movement was a young artist called Luigi Russolo Born in the little town of Portogruaro, not far from Venice, he had come to Milan to study at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera while still in his teens. Restless and excitable, they wanted to break free of artistic convention; and, after being introduced to Marinetti in early , they embraced his vision of Futurism. Only weeks later, Boccioni penned his own Manifesto of Futurist Painters and Russolo added his signature, along with the others. Over the next few years, this group of friends took the world by storm.

Elevator Music 25 celebrates the one hundredth anniversary of the groundbreaking contributions to experimental music of Italian composer and painter Luigi Russolo — : his Futurist manifesto L'arte dei rumori The Art of Noise and his invention immediately afterward of a new type of instrument he termed intonarumori noise instruments.

In The Art of Noise , Russolo called for a new musical reality that introduced everyday noises of the modern world—natural and mechanical—into musical composition. He designed and built a series of noise-generating instruments, assembling them into an orchestra and composing music for them. Russolo was one of the key figures of the twentieth-century Italian art movement Futurism. Founded in by writer and theorist Filippo Tomasso Marinetti — , Futurism rejected tradition and the past, aiming to revolutionize art and culture by embracing the new technology of urban industrialized life.

Professionally trained in music at a young age and self-trained in painting, Russolo began his career as a painter and continued to alternate between music and painting throughout his life.

In he penned a letter to his friend, the Futurist composer Francesco Balilla Pratella that he published as The Art of Noise. For Russolo, the limited timbres of a traditional orchestra and the customary chromatic scale were no longer relevant or exciting to the modern ear, which had become attuned to a whole new sonic palette. The Art of Noise describes six new families of noises:. After writing The Art of Noise , Russolo devoted the next twenty years to inventing, performing, and composing for his musical instruments.

Luigi Russolo’s Futurist Manifesto The Art of Noises, Revisited

Ancient life was all silence. In the nineteenth century, with the invention of the machine, Noise was born. Today, Noise triumphs and reigns supreme over the sensibility of men. For many centuries life went by in silence, or at most in muted tones. The strongest noises which interrupted this silence were not intense or prolonged or varied. If we overlook such exceptional movements as earthquakes, hurricanes, storms, avalanches and waterfalls, nature is silent.

In it, Russolo argues that the human ear has become accustomed to the speed, energy, and noise of the urban industrial soundscape ; furthermore, this new sonic palette requires a new approach to musical instrumentation and composition. He proposes a number of conclusions about how electronics and other technology will allow futurist musicians to "substitute for the limited variety of timbres that the orchestra possesses today the infinite variety of timbres in noises, reproduced with appropriate mechanisms". The Art of Noises is considered by some authors to be one of the most important and influential texts in 20th-century musical aesthetics. Russolo states that " noise " first came into existence as the result of 19th century machines. Before this time the world was a quiet, if not silent, place.

While crass and obnoxious, his outbursts were pretty much the most fun one could have in a politically-torn Italy. He was always met with a torrent of follow-up invitations the following morning, accompanied by locks of hair if the outburst was memorable enough. His paintings often distort physical reality to show just how eerie life in this new world was. One needs to look no further than his paintings to get a sense of this—abstract shapes jet out of skyscrapers; proto-freeways stretch far into the canvas as if pulling us towards an asymptotic horizon.
