La morte mi troverà vivo // English translation: In death you will find me alive.
Luigi Russolo – Italian Futurist and pioneer of Noise Art
An Artist and Curator exhibition discussion with Q&A: Mat Ward in conversation with Sarah Jones. Followed by a ritualistic musical response to La morte mi trover vivo featuring Ward’s collection of Intonarumori. Intonarumori is the name given to the style of instruments that Luigi Russolo built in 1913. Russolo considered Intonarumori as both a solution to the problems he saw with the modern orchestra’s lack of relevance to 20th century music and as a tool to spiritualise noise and harness its energy as a means to communicate with the supernatural. The performance is a collaboration between Dylan Banks, Mat Ward (Intonarumori musicians) and Dani Kirby (Voice).
