Sound artist Christine Sun Kim and multidisciplinary artist Thomas Benno Mader collaborate on Recording Contract, documenting the audio signals as a digital recorder travelled from Berlin to New York. After the file arrived in New York, Kim—who is deaf—edited the piece. See their contract and listen to excerpts from the project as well as the full 24 hour version exclusively on BOMB.
Christine Sun Kim is featured in Soundings: A Contemporary Score at MoMA through November 3rd. She will be giving a talk there on October 7th.
