About This Item

Milan: Edizioni Futuriste di Poesia, 1916. First Italian Edition, preceding all others. A book length expansion of the musical theories first put forth by Russolo in a 1913 manifesto to fellow Futurist composer Francesco Balilla Pratella. Text in Italian.

Perhaps the earliest treatise on the use of noise as an element in modern music, and one that would come to influence countless musicians and movements, including John Cage and Pierre Schaeffer.

Very Good in wrappers. Light foxing and toning to the wrappers and endpapers, with faint tidemarks to the some pages.
