Is it possible to be surrounded by a mass of humanity, a bustling sea of lives, agendas and expectations, and still stand in silence? It is a question that seems entirely relevant in what they tell us is an age of communication; an age of ceaseless noise and demands.

The release of Standing In Silence also incorporates an exclusive week long exhibition at MIC (Moving Images Centre), 321 Karangahape Road, Auckland.

The exhibition is a joint venture between Rhian Sheehan, Andrei Jewell, Nektar Films and Greenpeace and will showcase the music, photography and moving image surrounding the Standing In Silence concept.

On entering the exhibition, each patron will be issued with a set of wireless headphones allowing them to absorb the entirety of the project and truly stand in silence.

Gallery 2 will feature the stunning and equally alarming landscape photography of Andrei Jewell’s whose work also features in the album booklet of Standing In Silence.

Gallery 3 will screen a moving image installation specifically photographed for each Standing In Silence musical movement. The moving image works have been produced by Nektar Films with the intention of producing a non-dialog film to be screened and preformed in the context of a live show later this year. These films have been shot on location in India, Japan and China weaving together a mosaic of portraits and landscapes illustrating cultures in the grips of change.

The Standing in Silence film and live show will explore contemporary themes of urban development, our relationship to nature, monoculture, and the effects of industrialisation on our environment. The film has been photographed and directed by Gareth Moon, and produced and field directed by Matt Steele (Japan) and Echo Zu (China).

A percentage of the profits from the exhibition and album sales will go directly to ‘The Standing in Silence Fund’, which will be used to help get Greenpeace’s message on Climate Change out as wide as possible. The Fund will also help increase Greenpeace membership via a donation of 1 year memberships worth $180 each to members of the Loop newsletter via a competition. To sign up visit www.loop.co.nz

Opening night will be Tuesday 24 February, where Rhian Sheehan, Andrei Jewell, Gareth Moon and members of Greenpeace will be there to entertain and discuss the concepts of Standing In Silence.
