Cfr. n. Arch.184.30 ZERO is a limited edition collection of one-minute soundworks by international sound artists, experimental composers, noise makers and other audio creators. Contributors were invited to create an original recording of one-minute duration for the CD on the theme of ZERO – whether through their stripped-down, low-tech aesthetic or a focus on themes of absence, abstraction, distortion or a sense of thereshold between one state and another. The CD contains a broad variety of one-minute soundworks and presents the results of artists working thematically in chance juxtaposition. By bringing together this calibre and range of contributions, ZETRO aims to stimulate further interest in the artist work and practice, debate and dialogue surrounding sound art.

Born in 1944. Lives and works in London. William Furlong belongs to the generation of British artists who developed a new concept of sculpture in the 1970's and 80's (Gilbert & George, Bruce McLean, Paul Richards etc.). Furlong's special contribution has been in the area of "Sound" and, with the founding of Audio Arts (together with Michael Archer) in 1973, he began a project of mapping the territory of contemporary art in a series of cassette editions. The Audio Arts project is not only a massive archive of interviews with artists but also contains documents of important exhibitions, symposia and festivals plus many original acustic works by artists. William Furlong is professor at the Wimbelton School of Art in London.
