Failed Attempts at Silence is a pursuit to re-secure place and presence over time. Hall’s slowest recordings to date fuse qualitative approaches to past, present, and future present, with refined consideration of width within time. Failed Attempts at Silence progresses, moving lovingly, slowly, darkly, and aggressively, emerging a more spacious silence than it began.

“There is no such thing as an empty space or an empty time. There is always something to see, something to hear. In fact, try as we may to make a silence, we cannot.” – John Cage, Silence: Lectures and Writings.
