“Amanti Simultanei” (Simultaneous Lovers) is a short Futurist novel recorded during 1938 by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti on a 78 RPM disk. The rhythms, the inflections, the unique energy of Marinetti voice’ have been translated into music notation and represent the final destination of a journey of the trombone and the group of 5 “intonarumori” (a family musical instruments invented in 1913 by italian futurist painter and musical composer Luigi Russolo). The piece develops as a series of “notes” on how the soloist and the odd instruments by Russolo explore, stroke and flatter each others as mutual sonic lovers, till they reach the original voice of Marinetti, …and the Italian present.
“Appunti per Amanti Simultanei I” has been commissioned in 2009 by La Biennale di Venezia.
