Luigi Russolo was an Italian Futurist Painter and Composer. In 1913 he wrote the Futurist manifesto, The Art of Noises and performed "noise concerts" in Paris using machines that he had created called Intonarumori. Luigi Russolo was one of the first avant-garde composers and this animation was made in his honour.
