The 100th Anniversary of the Art of Noises
On March 11th 2013 it will be one hundred years since Luigi Russolo penned the Art of Noises manifesto in the form of a letter to fellow futurist composer Francesco Pratella.
…”a revolutionary manifesto that changed the way we think about sound and music”
The Neo Futurist Collective and their partners will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Art of Noises manifesto by futurist artist Luigi Russolo through a guerrilla performance on the streets of London at 7.30pm GMT and the release of a long-lost historic recording. Joseph Young of the collective will also be writing articles as a guest blogger on the World Listening Project web site and making an hour-long radio feature for Resonance FM for broadcast in April.
In a central London location (whereabouts to be announced on the day at 5pm GMT) The Neo Futurist Collective and Fruit for the Apocalypse will perform “Cartet” – a Quartet for Car Engines, Horns and Radios in homage to Russolo’s call for the celebration of urban noise. The performance will take the form of a flashmob in a well-known public space. On the same day, Professor Russolo and his Noise Intoners will perform a noisy bicycle ride through the streets of Amsterdam.
