Luigi Archetti (Switzerland, 1955) NULL (Parts 1-4) UK Premiere

The music of NULL describes our experience waiting, pausing, anticipating. To us, the act of not doing something, and merely expecting it, is as good as nothing. During this five-year project, sound designer Luigi Archetti made a series of recordings that serve as a metaphor for this sensation. Think of elevators, or train platforms, or empty offices – places where a murky near-silence permeates everything. With its greyscale drones and static sound, NULL invites us to notice the waiting room worlds we spend our days in.

Produced by hcmf// supported by the Swiss Arts Council Pro Helvetia

This event will finish at approximately 6pm
