A Death Metal Band Are Playing In An Airtight Box Until The Oxygen Runs Out
Well this seems like a really good idea.
Death metal band Unfathomable Ruination are playing in an airtight, soundproof box in London until they run out of oxygen.
The stunt is taking place outside of The Gherkin (30 St Mary Axe) in the City, with the band next due to play at 6pm this evening.
Those gathered outside the cube will hear only “strange vibrations” once the band enter the box.
Unfathomable Ruination's set is part of an art installation by Portuguese artist Joao Onofre, entitled "Box Sized DIE".
In each location the sculpture travels to, Onofre invites a local Death Metal band to play, on this occasion Unfathomable Ruination. The box is soundproofed, determining and restricting the performance's duration to the length of time in which the oxygen is expended. Outside the cube, viewers observe its strange vibrations, only viewing the band's entrance and exit to the performance space.
