"I do not give freedom to do what my heart desires, but on the contrary, I offer performers the opportunity to free themselves from their likes and dislikes, to focus internally."
Luigi Russolo is an Italian artist, composer and poet of the futuristic trend.
In 1913, he wrote a manifesto, which is in the form of a letter addressed to Francesco Balilla Pratella. In the manifesto letter "The Art of Noise", Russolo connects musical evolution with the multiplication of the number of cars, drawing attention to the fact that it is not only about large cities. Outside the city limits, the abundance of cars entailed such a polyphony of noises that "pure sound, with its insignificance and monotony, no longer evokes any feelings." Music develops in the direction of complex polyphonies, in order to evoke feelings, and, what is especially noted, in order to prepare for the creation of musical noise. Those articulations of sounds that would seem to a person from the XVIII
century egregious and objectionable to listen to, for a modern person may seem acceptable and even boring. According to the way life is filled with noise, a modern person needs "a greater variety of acoustic excitations" in order not to remain indifferent to music.
"We futurists deeply loved the harmonies of the great masters and enjoyed them. Over the years, Beethoven and Wagner have shaken our hearts and tickled our nerves. Now we are jaded and find more pleasure in the combination of the sounds of trams, carburetor engines, carriages and noisy crowds than at a rehearsal, for example, "Heroic" or "Pastoral". "
Speaking simply and without strong immersion, at the junction of these ideas, we created our project. This is a sound collage, which is built by the method of random loss of these sound parameters and a combination of recorded sounds, kindly provided by our friends and kindred spirits.
