to sing the love of danger Jonathan Herring

The title of this work is from an English translation of F. T. Marinetti’s ‘The Founding and Manifesto of Futurism’, written in 1909. Experimenting with, and being influenced by some ideas of Futurism, I sought to create music using the sonic byproducts of modern, technical inventions and their surroundings. The sound materials for this piece were collected in and around the factories at the port of Vancouver. An orchestra of “noise intoners”, extracted from this ambience, invites the listener into an abstract industrial world.

We thus approach nearer and nearer to the music of noise. —Russolo, 1913.
