AUDINT: A century of zombie sound

Originally formatted in 1945 by three ex-members of the Ghost Army, AUDINT currently consists of Toby Heys, Steve Goodman (Kode9), Souzanna Zamfe and Patrick Doan.

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 you 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 a period that they refer to as a century of zombie sound.
