Sonic Hauntology


I generally don’t post about my art projects on my mastering website, but this may be of interest to a lot of you. I’m in a research collective on sonic weapons, called AUDiNT together with Toby Heyes (Cocosolidciti), and Steve Goodman (Kode9 + Hyperdub). We have a show opening up in New York at Art in General called the “Dead Record Office”. We built a infrasonic subwoofer, along with custom bittorrent encryption software call the “Ghost Coder”. For those of you interested in sub bass, and hauntology should check out our show. I think its up until the end of July.

“AUDiNT, short for “Audio Intelligence” is a collaborative, research team comprised of artists and scholars Steve Goodman, Toby Heys and Jon Cohrs.

Since 1945, AUDiNT has been conducting research, rituals, and experiments into the opening of the 3rd ear, a dimension that materializes when sound, ultrasound, and infrasound are simultaneously deployed in a precise schema of sequencing, duration, and amplification. The 3rd ear forms a conduit for the channelling of voices and frequencies, allowing communication between the living and the dead, sanity and insanity and between disparate locations in space and time.

Adapting to, and capitalizing on the viral dynamics and tactical battlefields of 21st century digital networks, we are systematically uploading the AUDiNT research archive that has been compiled throughout the past 60 years. Our research concerns the hauntological power of sonic weaponry). This ritualized uploading of the spectral archive aims to create a prospective archive of wave-formed affect that is propagated throughout the living dead networks of our communication systems. This tactical shift – to open up our archive to the public – relates to our new mandate of arming the mass populace with the efficacy of sonic weaponry so that it does not become the sole preserve of the military-entertainment complex. With its dark science and sonically dissonant content, Dead Record Office is the enshrined location from which this viral transfer begins.”
