"..you have to make the good out of the bad, because that is all you have got to make it out of.." /r.p.Warren/
Luigi Russolo had a vision in which "every factory will be transformed into an intoxicating orchestra of noises". It was Russolo's belief that noise was the sound of music for the new century. He concluded that the incorporation of noise as part of the musical language was the next logical step for the future. In his manifesto Art of Noises (1913), he wrote "we must break out of this narrow circle of pure musical sounds, and conquer the infinite variety of Noise sounds...Let us wander through a great modern city with our ears more alert than our eyes, and enjoy distinguishing between the sounds of water, air, or gas in metal pipes, the purring of motors ) which breathe and pulsate with indisputable animalism), the throbbing of valves, the pounding of pistons, the screeching of gears, the clatter of streetcars on their rails, the cracking of whips, the flapping of awnings and flags. We shall enjoy fabricating the mental orchestrations of the banging of store shutters, the slamming of doors, the hustle and bustle of crowds, the din of railroad stations, foundries, spinning mills, printing presses, electric power stations, and underground railways.
