Between Thought and Sound


 This catalog was published on the occasion of the group exhibition Between Thought and Sound: Graphic Notation in Contemporary Music, which took place at The Kitchen in the fall of 2007.

The exhibition presented a broad range of graphic scores by contemporary composers and sound artists, and included forty-one works by thirty-one artists, namely: Laura Andel, Robert Ashley, James Beckett, David Behrman, Cathy Berberian, Earle Brown, Cornelius Cardew, Tony Conrad, John Driscoll, Morton Feldman, Jon Gibson, Tom Johnson, Alison Knowles, Joan La Barbara, Annea Lockwood, Alvin Lucier, Miya Masaoka, Kaffe Matthews, Meredith Monk, Gordon Mumma, Anthony Jay Ptak, Steve Roden, Marina Rosenfeld, James Saunders, Michael J. Schumacher, Elliott Sharp, Wadada Leo Smith, Yasunao Tone, David Tudor, Stephen Vitiello, and Christian Wolff. Between Thought and Sound was curated by independent curator Alex Waterman and The Kitchen's Debra Singer and Matthew Lyons. Designed by Will Holder, the catalog includes an introduction by Singer, an essay by Waterman, numerous quotes from the artists, and black and white reproductions of many of the scores from the exhibition. It also features a photo essay prepared by Lyons, highlighting The Kitchen's historical connection to much of the material in the show.


Proceeds from the sale of this book will support artists whose groundbreaking, genre-defying work appears at The Kitchen throughout the upcoming season.
