The Art of Noise was held in Quebec City on september 18 and 19, 2008, during the Mois Multi 9. The idea was to underscore the pertinence and necessity, 95 years after the Italian futurist Russolo’s publication of his manifesto, « Arte dei Rumori », of this extremely important text, the cornerstone, as it were, of audio art.
Over these two evening, 10 invited artists (we must mention here that, unfortunately, for reasons beyond our control, we could not use the excellent maximalist composition by a_dontigny) offered the public audio works of vast generosity inspired by the core text-direct or indirect inspiration, evocation, reinterpretation or re-appropriation. Happily, this exquiste moment was recorded!
These audio creation artists of today (in the sense of « contemporary ») paint a fascinating portrait of what is currently the best of what is happening in audio art and other spheres of sound creation. They represent a living art in constant evolution and, above all, are worthy avatars of the « monster » created by Russolo.
