Tuesday December 20th @ the Make It Up Club

Our final concert for the 2011 season is inspired by a century of Futurist intervention into Western aesthetics. Curated by Kerrie Farnsworth and Shane van den Akker, this week explores the influence of Luigi Rusolo's noise manifesto, “The Art of Noises,” and his intonarumori instruments as manifest in contemporary improvisation and instrument building, both analogue and digital. Exhorting us to open our musical ears to the sounds of the urban and industrial sonosphere, the Futurists anticipated the sonic complexity and abstraction that has become the foundation of modern avant garde improv. Farnsworth and van den Akker have assembled a cast of Melbourne's innovators in this tradition for a series of solo and collaborative noise making. MIUC will return for 2012 on Tuesday, January 17th. Keep safe and listen intently!
