Antonio Dias: The Space Between
A rare classic of sound art from Brazilian avant-gardist and provocateur Antonio Dias, this vinyl record is available in a limited edition.

In 1971 Brazilian artist Antonio Dias (1944–2018) self-published Record: The Space Between, a vinyl LP audio project. Side A, titled "The Theory of Counting," features a ticking alarm clock; side B, titled "The Theory of Density," is a recording of the artist drawing and expelling breath between intervals of silence, producing a transfixing continuum. The LP— Dias' sole sound-based work—represents a meditation on the idea of space constructed by time and sound. The album went on to become internationally influential and has been included in important surveys of the record as a medium, yet it remains a work more frequently referred to than actually heard, given its limited availability. In collaboration with the artist a year prior to his passing, MoMA/MoMA PS1 Records is reissuing this rare album from the original master disks in a uniquely designed limited edition of 500 copies, including images of the artist's original scores and introductory texts by Lilian Tone and David Platzker.
