AUDiNT’s installation Unsound Systems explores the use of sound as a weapon by focusing on the boundaries of the audible. At Site AUDiNT will produce a cosmology of sonic weaponry on the insides of vinyl album covers and an installation of an audio documentary. The latter sound work explores events in which frequencies have been utilised as tools by military and civilian organisations to organize, territorialize, harmonize, and torture the body (for example the use of high-pitched frequencies as a ‘teen repellent’ and the use of disco, heavy metal and country music as a means of torture).
