MKG127 is pleased to present
Dave Dyment: ROOM TONE

January 5 to February 2, 2008


Room Tone takes its name from the ambient recordings filmmakers use to provide continuous-sounding background. Silence in cinema is never completely silent – editors use the atmospheric room tone to prevent the soundtrack from ‘going dead’, which audiences would perceive as a failure of the sound system.

Here Dyment, whose practice often deals with silences and near-silences, brings together new works in a variety of media that deal with quiet drones, distortion and feedback. The exhibition continues the artist’s interest in the minute and the infinite, employing sparse and simple concepts with distinctly poetic undertones.
