Just sharing a dream for our art collective, urbanSTEW. We worked all summer and fall, to build six instruments inspired by Luigi Russolo’s Art of Noise – the Intonarumori machines, which translates to “noise makers” in Italian. We made a lot of noise at the Mesa Arts Center in March 2013, and it paid off big in MAKE magazine and MCM Electronic’s first annual Raspberry Pi Design Contest. What a nail biter … I kept checking the page every couple hours, and boy was the wait worth it.

Find more on our Intonarumori here: http://urbanstew.org/projects/intonarumori-noise-machines/

And if you’re based in the greater Phoenix, AZ, area and are interested in bringing them to your site, give our crew a holler!
