Process-driven and contextually anchored, the Still Moves soundworks comprise tracks of seductive unease. Filmic, atmospheric and yet intimate, subtly melodic without being overly musical, they explore the abstract quality of sound while focusing on its transformative potential to evoke a magnified sense of place.
Created for a multimedia installation by Russell Mills and Petulia Mattioli in the Palazzo delle Papesse Centro Arte Contemporanea, Siena, Hold integrates recordings made within the building’s former bank vaults, augmented by electro-acoustic sounds and haunting, wordless vocals. Hold explored ideas about possession and revelation, and about seeking alternative readings of what is presented as “truth”.
