Heralds of the age of Composition [top] Since the first publication of ‘ Noise ‘ there have been numerous developments in music that support Attali’s notion of the age of Composition.

Re: [rumori] IP killed the Internet

Very interesting in historical terms. White-noise is also aperiodic; its constituent frequencies are of random amplitude and occur at random intervals. In analysing rumofi shift between Representation and Repetition Attali states that “once again music was prophetic: He also suggests a prophetic vision of the transition between Repetition and Composition. Can the copyright laws be updated for the new situation?

Serious art music responded to this conjuncture in terms of intense noise, for example the La Monte Young Fluxus composition 89 VI 8 C. As Barbrook says, “According to Attali, each epoch of music-making creates its own specific social, technological and aesthetic forms. Marx himself provides a good analysis of the creation of value in Representation. In another example, as water is poured into a tall cylinder, certain frequencies of the noise created jacsues the gurgling water are resonated by the length of the tube, so that pitch rises as the tube is effectively shortened by the rising water.

Handbook for Sound Engineers: A Portrait London, T. Attali also suggests “these new instruments, will find usage only in the production, by the consumer himself, of the final object.


Character and Growth of a New Art Trans. On May 8 th, six young Japanese musicians, including Takehisa Kosugi and Yasunao Tone, formed the Group Ongaku with two tape recordings of noise music: Designing Sound for Apocalypse Nowin Projections 6: Just as white light is the combination of all the colors of the rainbow, so white noise can be defined as a combination of equally intense sound waves at all frequencies of the audio spectrum.

Experiments on Noise and Social Stressors. Today Repetition is based essentially on control over distribution and of the production of demand and not the production of the commodity. What lies in store for us as a result of the invention and subsequent subversion of two mould breaking discoveries – digital audio – the infinitely reproducible and ultimate mould, and the Internet – the uncontrollable means to distribute it globally?

Marx K, Vol 1, Appendix.

The State can play a positive role only by encouraging the extensive production of means of doing rather than objects, the production of instruments rather than music. Contains many interviews with composers e. Russolo found traditional melodic music confining and envisioned noise music as its future replacement.

It’s considered a seminal text in the field. The Theater of Eternal Music’s discordant sustained notes and loud amplification had influenced John Cale’s subsequent contribution to the Velvet Underground in his use of both discordance and feedback.


What will happen to the ‘record’ of the age of Repetition and what will supersede it? For me, art noise combines stimulation into an all-inclusive totalization through sympathetic vibrationjust as strings of a piano vibrate in sympathetic agreement, especially when tuned to the tuning system called just intonation.

Sound art found itself in the same condition, but with an added emphasis on distribution. The exponents of Hip Hop elevated the deck and mixer, the mechanism for playing the simulacrum of exchange in the Repetition economy, to the level of an instrument – which is indisputable when you see the skill and dexterity displayed by great Hip Hop DJ mixers and scratchers. Rumogi instruments [top] Attali notes that the process of inventing rukori instruments, after a pause of nearly three centuries, is gathering speed again.


Attali wishes to remove this activity from the rigid institutions of specialised music training in order to return it to all members of society. The aptly named noise rock fuses rock to noise, usually with recognizable rock instrumentation, but with greater use of distortion and electronic effects, varying degrees of atonality, improvization, and white noise.

As Barbrook says, “In his seminal text ‘ Noise ‘, Jacques Attali celebrates the prophetic power of music. Matt Black explains “I do believe that there is such a thing as a currency of ideas and I earn a living trading in that currency. The Internet and associated developments such as Napster, MP3 sites, Internet radio stations and streaming technologies have revolutionised the distribution of music and are beginning to affect the way people listen to music too.

In physics it is a broadband energy without periodicity Glass atttali Music as prophetic [top].

This model is important because it considers the potential presence of noise on the channel. A Buried History of Film Music London, Quartet books, History of film music with an examination of musics emotional impact on the film audience.
