Antonio Russolo (1877–1942) was an Italian Futurist composer, brother of the more famous Futurist composer and theorist Luigi Russolo. The 78 rpm record made by him in 1921 is the only surviving sound recording that features the original intonarumori. Both pieces, Corale and Serenata, combined conventional orchestral music set against the famous noise machines.


Corale and Serenata by Antonio Russolo can be heard on the audio CDs Musica Futurista: The Art of Noises and on Futurism & Dada Reviewed.
