2020 Pause by Richy Carey

April 8, 2020

The 33rd Images Festival has commissioned Glasgow-based composer Richy Carey to compose a one-minute audio track—a “Pause”—that will follow the closing credits of each screening on our 2020 Festival Live Stream. This project is an experiment in retrieving time to process our thoughts as audience members prior to each Q&A. 


The Pause was introduced at the 32nd Images Festival (April 11-18, 2019), with a commissioned audio track by Ellis Sam.
