Thisisthe story of a research, ofsleepless nights, and loud music. An experimental music ensemble isrecording an album. They want a very specific sound: the sound of thick air. The sound engineer struggles to understand and to find that sound. Shot across five cities and countless nights, Thick Air is a noise-injected collage, composed of diaristic footage, a found narrative (memories of a popular 60s band), original music, and field recordings. “A portion of my archive is made of my video diaries of concerts I go to: this film features Roscoe Mitchell, Headwar, Thurston Moore, and KVB. I use them to represent a moment in the life of a sound engineer.” (Stefano Miraglia)
