Welcome to


"Life in ancient times was silent. In the nineteenth century, with the invention of machines, Noise was born.  Today Noise is triumphant, and reigns supreme over the sense of men. The art of music at first sought and achieved purity and sweetness of sound; later, it blended diverse sounds, but always with intent to caress the ear with suave harmonies.  Today, growing ever more complicated, it seeks those combinations of sounds that fall most dissonantly, strangely, and harshly upon the ear.  We thus approach nearer and nearer to the MUSIC OF NOISE.  We must break out of this narrow circle of musical sounds, and conquer the infinite variety of noise-sounds."

--Luigi Russolo (1913)

Thanks for listening! The old index of audio files on pianonoise has been replaced, as of June 2018, with this new one. Or you can listen to the current pianonoise radio program.

(In case you were wondering, the new version, in addition to having a more updated look, is more cellphone friendly. It consists of the same files, in addition to several new ones for the year 2018-19)
