Italian Futurism (1909 to 1920) did not benefit from the impact of Russian Futurism (first months of 1912), which moved towards a radically new form together with an acceptable political form in its revolutionary beginnings - although it was preceded and modelled to some extent on Italian radicalism - albeit politically separated in the extreme.


released December 4, 2012

There is no doubting the importance of Luigi Russolo, whose The Art of Noises (1913) was the foundation of a century of radically different listening. The 78t produced in 1921 was made with the active collaboration of his brother Antonio. Is is, moreover, the only recorded trace of the famous "intonarumori". Here we present sides A and B.

If Luigi Russolo did not compromise himself in the fascism and admiration of the Duce, the same cannot be said of Filippo Tommaso Marinetti, who was however the leader and spokesman of the movement. Three pieces recorded from 1924 to 1931, relate both the beauty of the risky fight and a new way of perceiving beauty.
