about nula.cc

This site is the online presence of the project nula.cc, which consists of a ser­ies of file­casts, each an as­semb­lage of sounds, im­ages, or words, and made avail­ab­le for down­load, shar­ing, com­men­tary, and fur­ther man­i­pu­la­tion.

File­casts are gen­er­al­ly, though not ex­clus­ive­ly, cre­ated from found ma­ter­ial, assembled together with field recordings or other original source material. The ten­den­cy here will simp­ly be to let the works speak for themselves as much as possible. However, each individual filecast is accompanied by more or less de­tailed clues as to the sig­ni­fi­cance, con­text, or possible in­ter­pre­ta­tion of the works off­ered. These descriptions generally take brevity to be a primary virtue.

An abiding theme in all this is an affirmation of the primacy of context, subjectivity, and the essential collectivity of cultural creation. It posits that our response to the thing before us is itself a subject. Adding to the mystery is the fact that the word nula means zero in many languages.
