"Music is the cup that holds the wine of silence. Sound is that cup, but empty. Noise is that cup, but broken.”

Robert Fripp

Estridentismo

http://boisbresilcie.blogspot.com/2016/

"Stridentism", influenced by many trends as the most important, the Italian Futurism, was an artistic and multidisciplinary avant-garde movement, founded in Mexico City at the end of 1921 by Manuel Maples Arce.
Stridentism (1921-1927 when the group separates, for political reasons) shared some characteristics with Cubism, Dadaism, Futurism and Ultraism, but developed a specific social dimension, taken from the Mexican Revolution.


Manuel Maples Arce (May 1, 1900 - June 26, 1981) was a Mexican poet, writer, art critic and collector, lawyer and diplomat. He began his volumes of poetry with epigraphs and his literary movement with manifestoes; his collected body of work needs an introduction.


In 1976, the young writer Roberto Bolaño did an interview with this avant-gardist poet who appears as a character in Bolaño's novel Los detectives salvajes (1998).

”L’estridentismo non é una scuola, nè una tendenza, nè una mafia come quelle che qui vanno di moda; l'Estridentismo é una ragione di strategia. Un gesto. Un irruzione”
Manuel Maples Arce -1923
