BUSY DAY

24 Hour RADIO BROADCAST BY CHRISTINE SUN KIM AND THOMAS MADER


08-07-2017

Part of BUSY DAYS with Christine Sun Kim, and one of five artistic interventions in Amsterdam (and beyond) by Christine Sun Kim.

For Busy Day, originally conceived for French Radio program Web SYNadio (2014), Berlin-based artists Christine Sun Kim and Thomas Benno Mader invited 24 participants to contribute by recording the busiest hour of their day. Participants’ files were then compiled as a 24 hour long play list titled «Busy Day» along with a description of each individual hour.

Each contributor’s hour description is available online, to make the project not only sonically but also conceptually accessible for viewers who prefer to read. Please find the PDF with all descriptions here.

Excerpt from the invitation letter to the contributors:

“I’m writing about the radio playlist collaboration I am working on with Thomas Mader. It’s for an online radio station in France called webSYNradio. Since they broadcast 24/7 worldwide, Thomas and I have been thinking about what would best capture the sound of being “busy” in our times. We would like to constitute an actual full day of “busy” sounds by inviting participants to record themselves for an hour during their studio time, ranging from reading to thinking to talking to typing, or all combined. After we receive an hour-long file from each participant, we will arrange them as a full day and invite the public to tune in and listen. This way we will create a sort of “archive of busy”, raw material people can use to get inspired, to procrastinate or to satisfy their voyeuristic tendencies.
