DISSENT! Torture Music and Sonic Warfare

Following a screening of Evil.16 (Torture.Musik) (2009-2011), Tony Cokes discusses his work with lecturer, electronic music producer, and Hyperdub label-head Steve Goodman.

Goodman addresses sound as a force that can be deployed to produce a bad vibe, as explored in his book Sonic Warfare, Sound, Affect, and the Ecology of Fear (2012), whereas Cokes’ video deals with the military use of music and sound as a weapon, psychological manipulation, or torture.

Tony Cokes x Steve Goodman, moderated by Niels Van Tomme.
