Installation, a dubplate and 324 35 mm slides, 4 synchronized slide projectors

 Based on the progressive disappearance of the Dead Sea, “Silence starts at -425m” presents a dubplate[1] and a series of 35 mm slides, testimonies of the last sounds recorded at the dying sea in Jordan. On a journey from the Dead Sea Valley down to the Dead Sea’s bedside, “Silence starts at -425m” follows a man wondering with his sounding line, pursuing the aural traces left by the memory of a sea that once used to cover the whole valley.


[1] A dubplate is an acetate disc used in mastering studios for quality control and test recordings before proceeding with the final master. Because of its purpose, a dubplate last less than a vinyl and can only be played about fifty times.
