Luigi Russolo, the Intonarumori, and The Art of Noise



David Weinstein speaks to composer and historian Luciano Chessa about his research, re-imagining, and reconstruction of the legendary noise intoners or Intonarumori that were built by Futurist painter and author of The Art of Noise, Luigi Russolo. From the instruments' first appearance in 1913, to the legend of their fiery demise in WWII, Chessa has investigated the techniques and aesthetics that so many experimental sound aficionados have dreamed of for nearly a century. We also include an audio sample of the instruments, made during their rehearsal in our studios in advance of a performance at New York’s Town Hall on Nov. 12, 2009 (56 minutes).
