Silence and Other Impossible Objects dives head first into the deep end of an empty pool – the end where silence can be loud, where microsounds can be harsh and noise can be soothing. While searching for one of the most elusive of absences; the absence of sound, the international group of young artists found many things. Among them are a funeral party for noise, bittersweet songs about birds and sonic objects that behave more like the materials familiar to our other senses than that of hearing. But did they eventually find absolute pristine silence? Can it even be imagined, not to mention actually experienced?
Contemporary life seems to keep getting louder by the day. You are dearly welcomed to join our search for even a moment of the opposite.

● In 2021, all events at ALTA are free! ●

During the pandemic, we did not have the opportunity to meet you in person and open ALTA to the general public. Now that we can do it, we want to be even closer to you. We decided that we would not collect any entrance fees for our programs in 2021, so that really everyone could come. Culture to all!
