In the Darkness of the World

Sol Rezza In the Darkness of the World 2015

CTM Berlin – Festival for Adventurous Music and Art – Radio Lab 2015

In the Darkness of the World was a live performance work for 12.1 channels, a video installation and a stereo radio version broadcast on Deutschlandradio Kultur 13.02.2015 // ORF Ö1 Kunsradio 04.10.2015 // Hörspiel Sommer Leipzig 2016.

In The Darkness Of The World, is a radio play of sorts conceived by Sol Rezza. Combining the alien, otherworldly sounds of the deep ocean with snatches of spoken word and rich, womblike swathes of ambiance, the overall effect is something like slipping in and out of anesthesia disorientating, but undeniably pleasant.

Through sound design, sound experimentation, and a mix of recordings with hydrophones; This work re-read the atmosphere, the motives, and the intricate geographies of the classic book of universal literature «Vingt Mille Lieues Sous Les Mers» («Twenty thousand leagues of submarine travel») by Jules Verne.
