I put together a soundtrack to accompany the exhibition of Candy Chang’s Before I Die project at Wonderspaces.

Built from a bass tone, some vapor, and a cassette tape of Candy reading the responses from visitors, it’s a spare, whispery thing designed to flicker around a gallery. But I think it also performs nicely in headphones while working, reading, or contemplating one’s final moments. As I recorded this, I kept thinking about the phrase “a glitch in the ego death.”
