Default Futurist Composers

Looselips recommended me a Italian Futurist album last week, and I listened to it, and I was amazed. From beginning to end, fantastic composers. I want to start somewhere, but the guy I wanted to start with(Luigi Grandi) seems to have limited information. I can't even find list of the name of his works...

Any rate, it's brilliant music with twisted ideals. I recommend any fan of classical to check out:

Wow, those pieces are great. Thanks for posting. The second piece is really quite interesting, and it reminds me of another piece of music that I can't recall at the moment.

The Grandi one sounds like a soundtrack to an old Looney Toons cartoon - I don't much care for it.

The Guitini one is beautiful.

Electroacoustic/noise music from 1913. If that doesn't amaze you then I don't know what will... (I'm really surprised there isn't already a thread on him)



This is from the Russian Futurism movement, actually... Composed in 1922, it uses recordings of planes, guns, singing, marching, sirens, etc to create a piece of music that you could call "proto-industrial." It's really quite amazing, and I think it's on par with Russolo's electroacoustic pieces. It's ominous, chilling, sad, and the man put a lot of work into it. The least you could do is give it a listen.

Yea, I downloaded that recently. The only only tracks that really grabbed my attention were the ones by the Russolos and "Cinque Sintesi Radiofoniche" by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti. Although, I'll admit that the piano pieces are very interesting and unique...

Learning to appreciate Russolo more, and more every day. I think it's safe to say he may be the most creative musician of the last two centuries, and in contendership for all time.

It's funny that no one actually mentions this. Isn't cinema music based on classical instruments a modern/futuristic music and yet, easy to listen to?
The basic Idea behind music is the movements between the notes in order to create a stimulation of our feelings. it can make you angry, it can make you sad, happy, loved, confused... etc etc...
however, noises are not music although they are fascinating as an IDEA.
I really believe that there should be a visible line between "original noise" and future music.
