CONVOCATORIA: Then the silence Increased


Then the Silence Increased: Call for Responses “Then the Silence Increased” is an exhibition curated by Sound Artists Ben Gwilliam & Helmut Lemke, with the support of the Arts Unit of the University of Salford, commencing May 2007. For this project we are asking for Musicians, Artists, and those whose work is concerned with sound, to submit brief statements, quotes, opinions, anecdotes, memories, images about silence. It is our intention to fill the gallery space with hundreds maybe thousands of printed emails. All Responses will be shown in the exhibition and every contributor will be acknowledged in the accompanying catalogue. Please email texts etc to:

Best wishes
Helmut Lemke & Ben Gwilliam

    I’m an Italian writer and painter. I heard of this project on the radio some days ago. I think it’s great, as it’s stimulating and, under many aspects, necessary.
    Thank you above all for the opportunity of reflecting on one of the most urgent needs of our noisy society.
    I’ll send something as a contribution to the exhibition, if you think it’s acceptable.
    Best wishes.
