LUIGI ARCHETTI (*1955)
Visual artist and musician.
He lives and works in Zurich (CH).
Luigi Archetti's artistic work revolves around the interface between art and music, which he aims to make tangible in a variety of ways.
In his installation-based stagings he uses drawing, painting, video and sound to create tense and highly aesthetic spaces and complex reference systems.
The vocabulary of the music manifests itself not only in ideas and the way works are realized, but also in the direct use of objects and concepts from this genre.
Luigi Archetti stages the space as an image carrier in which various impulses – visual and tonal – encounter one another.

"Epic in scale, static, timbre and stillness, "Null" is a vast and profound music project that Luigi Archetti has been pursuing over a long period. His musical research is not about Null (the German word for zero) as a mathematical object, as a real number. Instead, the term Null (zero) is used here as a metaphor in order to describe a state of pausing and anticipatory waiting. The music in project NULL is characterised by static sounds, by drones and their overlapping and layering. The sound surfaces turn into acoustic sluggish material which flows slowly through time and gradually transforms itself. It is a constant gliding, a constant mutation of sound structures. Attempts to discover clearly defined melodies, rhythmically ordered structures or even beats are to no avail. A universe of sound particles diffuse in the foreground of the musical atmosphere, whereby the sounds do not provide any reference whatsoever to a possible location. All the sounds in the NULL project are sourced from e-guitars, which are in part extensively defamiliarized through digitalization and thereby redefined. The e-guitars (frequently in scordatura tuning) are used to this end as suppliers of sound. The acoustic sedimentation of the diverse sounds and sound structures results in a dense and filigree sound fabric which develops a pull effect on the listeners. It is an invitation to travel in uncharted regions, a hypnotically captivating journey through timeless and minimal acoustic events."
