Luigi Russolo (1885 Portogruaro (Veneto) - 1947 Cerro di Lavenio) was an Italian futurist painter composer and the author of Art of Noises (1913) and Musica Futurista. As indicated by the former title, he believed in and sought the use of noise in and as music, and even invented and built instruments: intonarumori ("intoners" or "noise machines"), mostly percussion, to create "noises" for performance. Unfortunately, none of the intonarumori survived World War II.
