"New and old compositions for Luigi Russolo's legendary Intonarumori.

After publishing the Art of Noises in 1913, futurist painter Luigi Russolo designed and built a revolutionary family of new noise instruments - large black boxes with acoustic horns, crank-handles and levers that could produce 'roars, thunderings, explosions, hissing, whistling, puffing, whispers, murmurs, mumbling, muttering, gurgling, screeching, creaking, rustling, buzzing, crackling and scraping'.

These are heard here in the first and only recordings of original works for orchestra and intonarumori, composed in the 1920s, and four specially commissioned works by Chris Cutler, Andzrej Karpinski, Nick Sudnik and Alessandro Monti. Exquisitely packaged in a threefold digipak featuring four impressive paintings by Futurist Ivo Pannaggi."-ReR Megacorp

"Silvio Mix (1900 - 1927) was an Italian composer known for his association with the Futurism Movent. He created a Futurist Theatre Company, and his ballets are among his best known works. He trained as an autodidact, getting very close to American jazz rhythms, and he composed the music of Angoscia delle Macchine (Vasari) and Balletto Cocktail (Marinetti). His is also the synthetic-musical profile of Marinetti for piano, and the ballet Psychology of Machines (1924). Cocktail was also performed in Paris."
