AUDINT: A CENTURY OF ZOMBIE SOUND
Alongside their collaboration on PZYK SKAN, research cell AUDiNT will host a unique presentation as part of this year’s Musings In Drone at Liverpool Psych Fest 2017.
Originally formatted in 1945 by three ex-members of the Ghost Army, AUDiNT now currently consists of Eleni Ikoniadou, Toby Heys, Steve Goodman (Kode9), Souzanna Zamfe and Patrick Defasten. Drafted into the research cell in 2009 by a rogue artificial intelligence named IREX2, they have been directed to investigate the ways in which ultrasonic, sonic, and infrasonic frequencies are used to modulate psychological, physiological and architectural states.
Of specific interest is the fact that ever since the invention of recording technologies such as the phonograph and telephone, military organisations have been interested in the ways in which vibration not only connects but also converges and de-territorialises the realms of the living and the dead. The presentation they will give extrapolates on these ideas and presents us with a brief historical overview of this spectral archive, that stretches from 1944 to 2064; from the Ghost Army to the Wandering Soul strategy; from phantom sonic economies to the Walking Dead Syndrome; from exhumed holographic rappers to holosonic warfare. This is a period that they refer to as the century of zombie sound, an era further investigated in AUDiNT’s upcoming anthology named Unsound:Undead, which will be published in 2018.
A Century Of Zombie Sound will be presented by AUDiNT on the afternoon of Saturday 23 September in PZYK CINEMA, as part of Musings In Drone.
