Luciano Chessa’s Orchestra of Noise Intoners

In October 2018, CAGE invited composer, author, and performer Luciano Chessa, along with his reconstructed orchestra of Futurism intonarumori for a series of events at Cornell University, hosted as part of the Cornell Council for the Arts (CCA) Biennial at the HF Johnson Museum of Art.

Chessa’s visit included instrument unpacking and calibration, rehearsals, and class visits, as well as a lecture and 3-hour performance at the museum.
