1913* / the art of noises / *2013

*University College Cork*

13 December 2013

The year 1913 was a momentous one in art. From Proust to Stravinsky,
Duchamp to Malevitch, Modernism was to recalibrate the way the world was
seen; Futurism offered to change the way the world was heard. One hundred
years ago, Luigi Russolo published his manifesto, *L’arte dei Rumori *(*The
Art of Noises*), announcing a new way not only of conceiving music but also
how we would hear the world around us. In the future, noises would be the
material of music. Russolo’s manifesto, and his strange
*intonarumori*devices, have been fantastically influential in the
intervening century,
and this event seeks to capture some of those connections, in both
discursive and performative modes.

*Possible themes:*

New sounds; new instruments; celebration of speed, war, or the modern city
in music, visual art and poetry; Futurist manifestos; music and sound
art; connections
to other artworks and artists in 1913; influences of Futurism in music and
other arts.

Proposals are invited for papers on any of the suggested themes, in the
form of an abstract or outline of not more than 300 words.

Proposals are also invited for art works - especially performances,
installations, sound sculptures, compositions – which are specifically
designed to address the themes suggested. The proposal should outline the
projected artwork, and should be accompanied by an abstract of not more
than 300 words that details the relationship of the work to the themes of
the symposium. The proposer will be responsible for supplying all
equipment/special resources required for the creation or
display/performance of any accepted proposal.

Please send your proposal by 5pm, October 31st by email to
phegarty at french.ucc.ie. The selection panel will meet as soon after this
date as possible and inform selected contributors forthwith.
