open.circuit is an audiovisual performance created by Assunta Alegiani and Pedro Ferreira that combines improvised sounds, collage and text. In their work they use personal subject matter to build up soundscapes that are in dialogue with moving images.


In a world of cross-fade songs with no space for silence, we try to slow things down. A state of meditation and inner peace. Being conscious of space and time, no rush for chord changes, no rush for new sounds. Noise is music, repetition is new information.
