EMPTYSET: MEDIUM

Music by Emptyset

Video by Clayton Welham and Sam Williams

Medium is stunning audio & visual piece by Emptyset and visual collaborators Clayton Welham and Sam Williams. The project created around the Woodchester Mansion in Gloucestershire. The Gothic Mansion was abandoned by its builders in the middle of construction, leaving behind a building that appears complete from the outside, but with floors, plaster and whole rooms missing inside. It has remained in this state since the mid-1870s.

There were recordings with vintage mics and other analog machines then transformed into the powerful sounds you hear. All footage was filmed on site and broadcast, processed and captured before editing, mirroring Emptyset’s ‘chain of sound’ processes.
