Vinyl compilation devoted to LUIGI RUSSOLO, the father of Futurist music and the first man theorizing that music has to be composed mainly by rumors and not by harmonic sounds.
His music was played with a self made instrument named: INTONARUMORI or RUMORARMONIO.
Russolo is the forefather and theorizer of ELECTRONIC MUSIC concept and for sure he was the first playing INDUSTRIAL MUZAK!
Moreover, Russolo was born in PORTOGRUARO, a small city in north-east of Italy very close to OEC's headquarters.
Therefore, it was nothing but due for OEC to pay tribute to his genius.
For this project we invited four artists which are known for beeing very close to "Futurism" since their first approaches to music and for their true and uncompromising “Industrial” involvement (in alphabetical order):
§ GX JUPITER-LARSEN from USA, also known for being the mind behind THE HATERS and for his very “Futurist” performances whre a click becomes the main sound.
§ MERZBOW from Japan, the father of Japanoise! His sounds propbably are Russolo's best devellopment into our days ...
§ RAPOON from UK, the solo project by ROBIN STOREY founder member of ZOVIET FRANCE, he was one of the very first artists using toy instruments which can be very well copared to the use of Russolo's Rumorarmonio / Itonarumori.
§ SACHER PELZ from Italy, Sacher Pelz used to be the very first project by MAURIZIO BIANCHI / MB, he was one of the very first artist theorising electronic noise.
For sure a perfect follower of Russolo's tehories.
Each artist gives his contribution to this tribute playing long tracks on a full LP side !
