In the 100th anniversary year of Futurist Luigi Russolo’s manifesto, The Art of Noises, The Orchestra of Futurist Noise Intoners (Luciano Chessa, Director) performs on the only complete reconstruction of Russolo’s earliest Intonarumori Orchestra, commissioned by Performa. Hand-cranked instruments designed to produce “noises”—the first instruments capable of creating and manipulating sound through entirely mechanical processes—generate sounds of whirrs and buzzes, clangs, scrapes, sirens and mechanically plucked strings. The program includes historical compositions by Russolo and Paolo Buzzi, as well as newly composed works by Chessa, Ulrich Krieger, Joan La Barbara, Annie Lewandowski, Theresa Wong (all also performing) and others, and features tenor Timur Bekbosunov, soprano Carmina Escobar and 16 players operating the instruments under Chessa’s baton.

Funded in part with generous support from the Istituto Italiano di Cultura (IIC), Los Angeles.
