Sonic Weapons – Escoitar.org

 

This audio-work presents an overview of the different uses, developments and technologies that make use of SOUND in order to exert social control and power. The piece provides a conceptual approach to the topic by illustrating its applications through audio-quotes and other forms of documentation that analyze the impact and effects of these technologies, as well as it uses and abuses. By using a micro-tale or docudrama format, this work may contribute to the analysis of the effects of sound in human existence, enabling a critical analysis of this phenomenon.

A first version of ‘Sonic Weapons’ was produced and premiered on occasion of the Art’s Birthday Party 2009 (‘Safe & Sound’), organized by the Ars Acustica group. For all the details concerning the origin of the audio-quotes, please visit http://www.artesonoro.org/sonicweapons/
