0O / Null Orchestra is a group at College for Art and Art Theory, Hungarian University of Fine Arts. The main goal of the group is to develop a microcommunity which can cooperate for a longer period of time, where the active work of the participants – and other guest artists – first aim at the creation of a group-specific music language and later on the development of a special performing attitude.
0O / Null Orchestra was formed by former and current studends of the Hungarian University of Fine Arts and of Franz Liszt Academy of Music. With their performance, the group aims to experiment with the roles of the listener and the performer, approaching this task with the toolkit known from religious rituals and lithurgies, and by the continuous redefinition of musical textures. The performance "※" summarizes and terminates the group's artistic activity.
The conductors and the participants of the ritual simultaneously get acquinted with sounding objects placed in a matrix. As the performance unfolds, the objects become organic elements of an evolving narrative, leaving their previous passively sonorous state behind - the result of the ritual is the establishment of a transcendent meta-object. The sounds and the placement of the items become integrated in an installation. The participants are able to follow the plot through visual and sonic channels, transmitted by microphones and body cameras.
