Imagine hanging suspended in bullet time, halfway between the clouds and the earth, deep inside a snowflake. Yann Novak’s Snowfall, first presented as a “durational audio-visual performance” over six hours (come and go as you please), is limited to exactly sixty minutes on disc but primed for “repeat”. Poised in its stillness, the sounds of a hundred seasons can be discerned. Not two snowflakes are alike, no two listens the same. Perfect for long, wintertime gazes out the window.
To continue floating through a similar climate, enjoy Novak’s recent collaboration with Fabio Perletta, Liminality.
