This is not a reading / Ceci n’est pas une lecture is a series of remixes and conversations inspired by sound. In this series, author Ming-Yuen S. Ma invites artists discussed in his book There is no soundtrack: Rethinking art, media, and the audio-visual contract to creatively respond to it, akin to a DJ remixing a music track.
