Reconstruction of intonarumori by Fred K. Prieberg, 1977.
Displayed at the 'Écouter par les yeux' exhibit, Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, 1980.

The Italian Futurist Luigi Russolo came to sound from painting through poetry. He wanted to do for music what F. T. Marinetti was doing for poetry with his parole in liberta. In Russolo's often quoted manifesto from 1913, l'arte di rumori, Russolo proposed an Art of Noise to break through the limiting canvas which cultivated 'pure sounds' had placed on music. He wanted to reverse the processes of articulatory control which had produced the restrictive circle of pure sounds, and return to the creation of noise and the sense wonderment which it had evoked from earlier people. It was his contention that the process which reduced noises into musical harmonics had also robbed sound of its ability to arouse the emotions.
