During the first decades of the 20th century, the longstanding belief in the opposition between "noise" and “music” was eradicated.
Russian Futurism and post-Revolutionary experimental culture set off a widespread noise trend, represented in music, theatre, and film production. Noise Revolution of the Early Soviets: Between Folklore, Jazz, and the Avant-Garde surveys the phenomenon of this mass noise breakout, rooting it in medieval music traditions and musical eccentrics, while giving special attention to the 1920s avant-garde scene in Russia and later noise endeavors undertaken by individuals like Vladimir Popov.
