Today it’s 100 years since the futurist Luigi Russolo wrote his manifest L’arte dei rumoriThe Art of Noises. Although the latter direction of Italian futurists lead to not a very happy political support, their impact on the perception of music and sounds (and of course also visual art for example) is indisputable. This manifest should be read by everybody who claims that something „is not music“, because now it’s 100 years, since people were able to consider noise and urban sounds as music (from where there’s only one step to John Cage’s idea that music can be anything).
