Was thinking earlier about the role of manifestos in noise/industrial, especially given recent discussions on narratives and concepts. Are there any examples you can think of from past or present people/projects/movements, or even ones that you have produced yourself? I'm not talking about mere PR blurb to help sell a tape or record, but an artist statement, modus operandi or a written/visual tract that the artists/signees have stuck by with little deviation or update, perhaps even from a project's conception.

Full quoted examples and URLs are appreciated along with when and where they were originally published. Similarly, discussions about their intents (artistic, political or otherwise), their outcomes/influence, related manifestos in art/culture, and whether manifestos continue to hold relevance today are encouraged.

I shall try and continue to update this post with a chronological list of examples as further replies are made, much like the older "Canon of PE/Noise" posts made in the past.

This came to mind:

The Art of Noise (futurist manifesto, 1913)
by Luigi Russolo, Robert Filliou (Translator)

The Art of Noise presents the 1913 Futurist manifesto “L’arte dei Rumori” as translated by Robert Filliou. Russolo calls for an infinite expansion of musical vocabulary and sensibility in coordination with that of industrial machinery—“We must enlarge and enrich more and more the domain of musical sounds”—envisioning a machine-based music that would dispense entirely with inherited forms. This publication made the text widely available in English for the first time. Also included is a description of the “First Concert of Futurist Noise Instruments” in Modena, Italy on June 2, 1913.

Vomir's Wall Noise Manifesto from a number of years ago:

Bit of a wonky English version when you scroll down.

ANTI-SOCIAL REALISM

No longer should transgressive art be seen as a depiction of injustices and atrocities, where the hidden agenda is equally tame as in social realism. No longer should it be expected to depict life’s struggle and hardship including sentimental moral statement, supposedly exposing injustice and therefore awaking empathy and placing the assumed victim in a mystified, heroic role. No longer should transgression be the route to artificial self-empowerment.

Anti-Social Realism answers to the void in field of art, plagued by provocateurs who merely mirror the reality to preach the message of modern humanist politics. Anti-Social Realism answers to the hordes of art activists who swarm in a pigsty of clichés and cheap thrills, only to walk out clean and safe with impotent goals.

Anti-Social Realism exhibits social, sexual and racial injustice, economic hardship, political extremes, antisocial urges and desires. Anti-Social Realism depicts targets and situations with no undercurrent of human rights protest, obvious satire or moralist message. Anti-Social Realism lurks in the dark corners of human mind, accepting and celebrating the abusive and filthy urges and interests. It seeks to present situations of abuse, objectification, degradation, impulsive aggressions and desires beyond the ability to consider well-being, value and emotional damage of real or hypothetical objects in question. It feels no remorse for the subject matter nor apology for the approach.

Mikko Aspa, 2011

Wow, that is old school.  Makes me want place an ad like that in my local paper.
