sample the album:
Futurist composer Luigi Russolo wrote the score for his noise composition "Risveglio Di Uns Citta" ("The Awakening Of A City") in 1914, performing it with an orchestra of musicians trained to use his intoning devices, or noise machines. Decades ahead of his time, Russolo's 1913 manifesto "The Art of Noise" remains a valuable and insightful document on the place of sound and noise in modern music.
This concert of electronic artists was inspired by the score for "Risveglio Di Uns Citta", and was realized by Phil Zampino and the Wilmington Sound Orchestra, performed to open a show on Dada poetry from Dutch sound poet Jaap Blonk. What follows are notes in my call to musicians to take part in this event, explaining the intention and execution of the performance.
• Show Bio for Phil Zampino
phil zampino, born in 1961 in Westpoint, NY, is the son of clarinetist Gerald Zampino, and was raised with shards of music stimulating his ears from his initial memories. A mixture of music, mathematics, computers, and a love of collecting unusual recordings led to the ineludible formation of CHANGES TO blind. Those same foundations led him to forming this very same Squidco, the online music store and distributorship focused on improvisation and experimental sound. Having no longer a concept of right or wrong in "music", he follows his eccentric ear to wherever sounds leads him.-Squidco (http://www.squidco.com)
