[Temporary Closed] 0℃

December 13, 2019–March 1, 2020 [Closed on February 29 and March 1]

[Temporary Closed] 0℃

Outline

Temporary Closing

In compliance with Japan’s national health authorities, NTT InterCommunication Center [ICC] have made the decision to close its facility from February 29 to March 1, as a measure against the further spreading of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in Japan.

We apologize for the inconvenience and disappointment this may cause to those who had hoped to visit on both dates.
We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.


“0℃” is a sound project related to snow and ice that KAMIMURA Yoichi and UMEZAWA Hideki have been engaged in since 2016. In communication with artists around the world, they have been conducting a variety of recording, listening and performance events revolving around environmental sounds of snow and ice. While evoking the natural environments of such remote places as the South Pole or Greenland, the project encourages the audience to consider how these things are related to their own daily lives.
This time the artists focused on the severe natural conditions of polar regions, and collected audio recordings from several artists who have been visiting such places to record the sounds of ice and snow.

Unfolding as a soundscape in the setting of the ICC theater’s 5.1ch sound system, the sounds of drift ice and icebergs remind visitors of the situation of the natural ice that is slowly but steadily vanishing on a global scale. To perceive such developments through sounds will be an experience that inspires us to imagine the transformation that is happening at places far away from metropolitan Tokyo—natural environments that surpass the power of human beings, yet continue to change as a result of human intervention.


Date: December 13, 2019–March 1, 2020
Venue: ICC 4F Theater
Capacity: 27 persons
Admission free
Total duration: about 45 minutes

Organizer: NTT InterCommunication Center [ICC]
