Written in 1913 by Luigi Russolo, The Art of Noise Manifesto marks the start of the modern music era. There wouldn't be probably either John Cage or Musique concrÃ¨te without the disruptive sound experimentations of the Italian Futurists at the beginning of the 20th century. The Futurist conception of music, indeed, made no distinction between the realm of the sound and that of noises> both of them were part of the same musical substance, the background of the human existence in the world, and therefore, a raw material ready to be manipulated by the artist. Starting from the founder and leader of the Futurism Filippo Marinetti, La Musica Futurista nell-Italia e nel Mondo is a compelling collection of pieces executed by some of the pivotal figures of the "art of noises." Comes in a special @flap@ deluxe gatefold sleeve, an Italian futurist newspaper replica.
