in a landscape...

1930's RPPC from latvia...

this is one of my dream sculptures - a hybrid of unintended associations including stockhausen's sternklang park music, superstudio's continuous moments, and alexander graham bell's pyramid tetrahedral structures... and of course, russolo.

looking at these giant speakers i can't help but hope that this crowd is in the midst of a cloud of futurist sound compositions fueled by the ideas in russolo's art of noises, and composed using sounds from his list of "the 6 families of noises of the futurist orchestra":

1
Rumbles
Roars
Explosions
Crashes
Splashes
Booms
2
Whistles
Hisses
Snorts
3
Whispers
Murmurs
Mumbles
Grumbles
Gurgles
4
Screeches
Creaks
Rumbles
Buzzes
Crackles
Scrapes
5
Noises obtained by percussion on metal, wood, skin, stone, tarracotta, etc.
6
Voices of animals and men:
Shouts
Screams
Groans
Shrieks
Howls
Laughs
Weezes
Sobs

Hello, SRoden
I saw some Nipponophone 78´s you posted in January on this blog. Would you be interested in trade them? I am a 78 rpm collector from Brazil, and have available lots of Brazilian styles on 78 rpm, plus other foreign music.
