Event description
Villa Lontana Records presents Andrés Saenz de Sicilia 21 - 9 - 18

About this Event

Flat Time House is excited to be hosting a live event for the London launch of Villa Lontana Record's first LP, 21 - 9 - 18 by Andrés Saenz de Sicilia. Saenz de Sicilia will perform live at Flat Time House using a multi-channel sound system across the space.

21 - 9 - 18 is the documentation of the artist’s performance in the car garage of Villa Lontana on 21 September 2018. A Roman necropolis of more than 160 tombs dating back to the first half of the 1st century BC was recently rediscovered under the concrete garage. When concrete was invented it was designed as a material that would never decay. Saenz de Sicilia’s performance made use of a multi-channel sound system to respond to space, considering different senses of weight, density, and time. For the performance the artist worked on a text-sound collaboration with Adam Green, writer, artist and editor of The Public Domain Review. For this event Saenz de Sicilia returns to this piece, reconstructing it in response to the spaces of FTHo.

Villa Lontana Records is an independent record label which focuses on the production of new sounds, from electroacoustic to sonorous poetry and performance. The label is part of the curatorial programme of Villa Lontana, curated by Jo Melvin and Vittoria Bonifati in Rome with the support of the Fondazione Dino ed Ernesta Santarelli. The curatorial programme of Villa Lontana presents exhibitions with focused dialogues between the collection, which is seen as an archive, and contemporary art practice. The programme includes publications, artist editions and sound projects.

Andrés Saenz De Sicilia (b. 1985) is a philosophy lecturer, musician and sound artist based in the UK. He is a founding member of London-based trio Pataphysical who released their debut LP Periphera with Glasgow based record label 12th Isle this year.
