Empty When Full
Empty When Full is a minimalist composition that invites you to experience dualities of a system of accumulation incapable of regulating itself, and speculates on its self-destruction.Time-space and fragility-violence are the dualities brought into play in a feedback scheme that manifests the relationship between structure and operation through the resonant continuity of a discontinuous body, a composition whose indeterminate duration exists between infinity and the destruction of the system.

Dia Silla (29 min 35 sec)
The documentary ‘Dia Silla’ collects the survivors’ testimonies and images of the places affected by the seismic events of 2016 and 2017 in Central Italy. The narrative focus specifically on the day of the 18th of January 2017, when a heavy snowstorm, several earthquakes of high magnitude and the consequential interruption of communications and networks lines left a powerful impression on the community’s memory. These events occurred in an area particularly ill-suited to deal with them. Acquasanta Terme is a large area, sparsely populated, with a predominantly elderly population. Similar to an audiovisual symphony, the movie create a portrait about memory, human fragility, landscapes and the struggle against isolation and natural disasters.

Red House On a Hill
An aural miasma for the radio by G Lucas Crane, written by G Lucas Crane and Angela Moore, beats and loops by G Lucas Crane and Pam Finch.
Red House on a Hill is a piece of radio-theater set in a world where the energy crisis has been solved, but solved a little too well. Today, we live in a culture of false scarcity that we have brought with us from the animal kingdom: I better eat now, because I don’t know when ill eat again. Wealth is hoarded by small groups, while larger groups starve, and the morals and ethics of this situation align to justify what is already happening, not what could be happening. In the world of the Red House on the Hill, society came together to actually solve the energy crisis: not having enough energy to go around, but went too far: now let’s just make energy out of everything, out of whatever is laying around. And we’ll just cover everything in outlets. just outlets abso-fucking-lutly everywhere. Let’s make power. And that power will flow. And that power will need a throne. And that throne will be in a house, upon a hill.

Nina Guo & Augustė Vickunaitė
Nina Guo and Auguste Vickunaite freely improvise together; Nina sings and Auguste plays
reel-to-reel tape recorders. Their music frequently has loops and noise, but not exclusively. All sounds are live and analogue. All text is improvised. This piece, Sheeps, combines sound from one of the artists’ rehearsals with footage that they took near their studio. It features a very important theme in their work and creative practice together.
