Since mid-March, The Antlers frontman Peter Silberman has been releasing a series of performance videos to complement each song on his debut solo album Impermanence.
The album consists of six quiet tracks, all accompanied by their own visuals shot at Philip Johnson’s Glass House museum with dancers Rebecca Margolick and Stephanie Crousillat. With the release of part six, the full film Impermanence at the Glass House is now complete.
“It is rare to find a project in which each element is a person, practice and aesthetic that I love completely,” says director Derrick Belcham, who also praises “the sound of Peter’s performance reflecting off the surfaces and enclosures” and “Rebecca and Stephanie’s spatial relationship with the architecture of the Glass House.”
Silberman suffered a major setback when he was suddenly diagnosed with a handful of hearing-related impairments that left him cringing at even the sound of his own voice. He moved out of Brooklyn and isolated himself to be away from the constant noise. The result is the haunting, hushed sound of Impermanence.
