Music for 16 Futurist Noise Intoners

All-Star Cast of Experimental Composers to Perform on Reconstructions of Legendary Futurist Instruments Not Heard Since 1913!

"They are the DNA of experimental music!" said Elliot Sharp when he had a chance to play one of the first 'noise intoners' commissioned by Performa for Performa 09, in celebration of the one hundredth anniversary of the launch of Futurism. Music For 16 Futurist Noise Intoners will be an extraordinary historic evening in itself; all sixteen instruments that Luigi Russolo built and performed with fellow Futurists only once at the home of F.T. Marinetti in 1913, will be together on stage for an evening-length concert of original scores and compositions by the most significant and adventurous of contemporary experimental composers. As the first instruments capable of creating and manipulating sound through entirely mechanical processes, the intonarumori can be considered as the original analog synthesizer, and the ancestors to the most up-to-date electronic instruments used today.

Luciano Chessa, composer and Russolo scholar, directed the reconstruction of the instruments and conducts the evening, which includes live performances of three legendary pieces from the past —a fragment from Russolo's spooky Risveglio di una città (1913), La pioggia nel pineto antidannunziana, a newly-discovered 1916 Futurist piece for intonarumori, and Words in Freedom by Futurist playwright and poet Paolo Buzzi -- and wonderfully poetic compositions from the present, including Einstuerzende Neubauten frontman and Nick Cave collaborator Blixa Bargeld, avant-garde saxophonist John Butcher, Deep Listening pioneer Pauline Oliveros, Faith No More and Mr. Bungle vocalist Mike Patton, sound and text-based performer Anat Pick, avant-garde musician Elliott Sharp, vocalist and composer Joan Le Barbara, composer and vocalist Jennifer Walshe collaborating with composer and film/video artist Tony Conrad, and Icelandic supergroup Ghostigital with Finboggi Petursson and Casper Electronics.

Music for 16 Futurist Noise Intoners is commissioned by Performa with SFMoMA and the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC). Curated with Luciano Chessa with Esa Nickle (Performa).


Two Day Mini-Festival to Present an Exciting Line-Up of Key Musicians and Artists Who Developed the Dynamic Trajectory of Experimental Noise Music

A mini-festival of noise and avant-garde music curated by internationally acclaimed visual artist Mike Kelley, A Fantastic World traces the development of experimental music from the Futurists to Fluxus, from the New York No Wave scene to the industrial sounds of Europe, the groundbreaking Los Angeles Free Music Society, and beyond.

Artists headlining the two-day event include Sonic Youth frontman Thurston Moore, text-based sound artist Z'EV, No Wave pioneer Arto Lindsay, Half-Japanese co-founder Jad Fair, avant-garde composer and musician John Zorn, experimental musician and filmmaker Tony Conrad, vocalist and composer Joan La Barbara, singer and composer Shelley Hirsch and turntablist and visual artist Christian Marclay, electroacoustic trailblazer John Duncan, Joe Potts (Le Forte Four)-headed musical ensemble Airway, Throbbing Gristle leader Genesis Breyer P.Orridge, and Mike Kelley's own seminal "anti-rock" group Destroy All Monsters. There will also be reconstructions of historic works by John Cage, Fred Frith, Fluxus, Bruce Nauman, and Max Neuhaus, connecting the contemporary proponents of experimental music performing in the festival to their legendary antecedents.

Curator Mike Kelley was born in Detroit in 1954 and brought up amidst the city's well-known music scene, which spawned bands such as Iggy and the Stooges and MC5. A Fantastic World explores Kelley's longtime interest in experimental avant-garde music playing with bands such as Destroy All Monsters and Extended Organ.

A Fantastic World is presented by Performa. Curated by Mike Kelley and Performa Curator Mark Beasley.


Do not miss these two remarkable music events covering a century of historic breakthroughs in 20th century music, and new directions for the 21st century. Tickets for both events are selling fast, so visit http://www.performa-arts.org or call (212) 366-5700 to order yours today.


Performa 09, the third edition of the internationally acclaimed biennial of new visual art performance presented by Performa, a non-profit multidisciplinary arts organization established by RoseLee Goldberg in 2004, will be held in New York City from November 1–22, 2009. The three-week festival will showcase new work by more than 80 of the most exciting artists working today, in an innovative program breaking down the boundaries between visual art, music, dance, poetry, fashion, architecture, graphic design, and the culinary arts. Presented in collaboration with a consortium of more than 60 arts institutions and 25 curators, as well as a network of public spaces and private venues across the city, Performa 09 will ignite New York City with energy and ideas, acting as a vital "think tank" linking minds across the five boroughs and bringing audiences together for brilliant new performances in all disciplines.

What is Music? 2009

What Is Music?
12-19 December 2009

After a thunderous return in 2008, the What Is Music? Festival is back again attempting even more ridiculous and sublime experimental music programming! After 15 years the reputation of the Festival speaks for itself and 2009 will see even more incredible performances and events unleashed upon Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.

American laptop terrorist John Wiese will perform his first solo shows ever on these shores, having played the festival as a member of Sunn O))) in 2005, as well as premiering visual scores for large-scale ensemble. Expect the extremest of frequencies, and some of the best improv you've ever heard.

Joining us from Poland will be Musica Genera festival curators Robert Piotrowicz and Anna Zaradny. Robert is a master sculptor of dense, layered synth beauty, though his infamous grindcore roots lend a sense of the brutal/beautiful/brutiful. Anna brings a much needed and appreciated sense of feminine grace and patience with her complex, slow-shifting laptop work, not to mention an impressive pedigree including collaborations with Burkhard Stangl, Zbigniew Karkowski, Tony Buck and Cor Fuhler.

From Japan: hercel. Shayne Bowden/Ayako Mori, man/woman, painful/ecstatic, creation/destruction, foreign/familiar and lots more tasty dichotomy action, all wrapped in a crunchy shell of power electronics. Essential viewing for both the modern intellectual neanderthal and primitive reactionist übermensch alike.

Of course all your favourite locals (and expatriates) will be there too, including Oren Ambarchi, Jon Rose, Clayton Thomas, Clare Cooper, Jim Denley, Alan Lamb, David Shea, Brendan Walls, Matt "Skitz" Sanders and many more (un)usual suspects presenting new works, new sounds, new experiences.

Perhaps the most exciting event though will be the final night of the festival that Melbourne's already talking about, 50/50. Five conductors, four screens, three hundred seats, too much excitement in one massive night. 50 bands. 50 minutes. Not to be missed.
