I don't entirely agree with Russolo in regards to his stance on disignated musical instruments.
Luigi says, "Away! Let us break out since we cannot much longer restrain our desire to create finally a new musical reality, with a generous distribution of resonant slaps in the face, discarding violins, pianos, double-basses and plainitive organs. Let us break out! " I can't conscientiously agree with casting aside these instruments. They have their place. They may be old but they have also been refined ability to communicate on their own. A Chopin nocturne is able to speak just as much as a Mozart piano concerto. I do agree with changing our ideas on how to use these instruments though and break out of old tradition to find something new.
Luigi Russolo wrote this paper near the beginning of the 20th century, if I were to show him contemporary music he may be very excited by sounds we've already grown bored with. Despite my appreciation for the old and modern instruments I agree and see the potential in the sounds outside these that the modern world provides.
My favorite modern bands use sounds outside of the guitar, drums and bass. These are often sounds with timbers you can't give a name. Along with new techniques for recording and mixing its now possible to turn these sounds into soundscapes that have never been available even until the last few decades. Despite this people rarely leave the typical model that almost modern music from any category like to fall into.
This is why I agree with every one of Luigi's conclusions and while I may appreciate many aspects of modern and old music I also have complaints and am finding much of these complaints are being or have been answered by people interested in the art within sound with out falling into stereotypical models and creating something entirely unique that belongs to the sounds alone.
So if I had to choose a new title for a modern day adaption I would probably go with the title: The art within sound
