The Art of Noises

The word "Intonarumori" is Italian and it means "noise intoners." The word comes from the Italian Futurist art movement. The Intonarumori were machines built to mimic the industrial sounds of the age. The Futurist composers created symphonies for the machines. Their concerts often resulted in fist-fights with the audience.

I am interested in the fist fights, do you have more info on that? What was the reason? Are there any contemporary accounts?
