RIGS is a new concept and format that presents a rig of some kind which, when turned on, makes sound. The rig is set up by the invited artist. Initial conditions are created after which the rig is left untouched for the duration of the set. Borrowing heavily from previous notions of installation, music of long duration, stasis and emergence. The framework aims to heighten sensitivity to subtle change over extended periods of time. RIGS hopes to subvert preconceived notions of the stage as a place for spectacle and distraction, opting instead to amplify introspection by allowing the listener to focus in on fine grained detail at the microscopic level.
