FOUR - reductive journal issue 04 - Nov 2015


As I put it to one side, I am no wiser as to how, or if I am meant to respond to it,
but the process of considering such questions is a beguiling one that means it won't
be long before I pick it up again.

Richard Pinnell
Extract from Foreword


FOUR invites eleven works that linger in between categories of critical thinking, sonic art, music, visual art and literature. Each work articulates silence and space that is in some way sonic, and their minimal aesthetics may be perceived as active or non-active in theory and practice. Some compositions are quite introspective, while others are more argumentative, but non is definitive. FOUR connects reading as an intimate listening experience.
