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. It would perhaps be counterproductive to delimit what this material may consist of, or what transformations it may undergo in becoming a filecast. 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 interpretation of the works offered. These descriptions generally take brevity to be a primary virtue.
The nula.cc project also represents the continuing work of Lloyd Dunn, an artist in graphic and time-based media. In the 1980s and 90s, Dunn published the zines PhotoStatic and Retrofuturism. He also made films and acousmatic music and later co-founded The Tape-beatles with a group of like-minded friends.
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.
Communication is welcome and encouraged. Your messages are always welcome at email@example.com, which is a direct line to editorial. In a limited and selective way, nula.cc also makes use of a variety of social media services, which you will find listed in the “functions” menu.
When I was young, I believed in expression. … I wanted to express everything. … Now I … no longer believe in expression. I only believe in allusion.
