Vinyl compilation devoted to "Luigi Russolo" the father of Futurist music and the first man theorizing that music has to be composed mainly by rumors and not by harmonic sounds.

- Merzbow from Japan, the father of Japanese noise. This is most propbably Russolo's own sound devellopment into our days ...
- Rapoon from UK, with his first project "Zoviet France" Robin Storey was one of the very first artists using toy instruments which can be very well copared to the use of Russolo's Rumorarmonio's or Itonarumori.
- Sacher Pelz from Italy, Sacher Pelz was the very first project by Maurizio Bianchi also known as MB , he was one of the very first artist theorising electronic noise. For sure a perfect follower of Russolo's tehories ...
