AUDiNT, short for “Audio Intelligence” is a collaborative, research team comprised of artists and scholars Steve Goodman, Toby Heys (Eyebeam Resident) and Jon Cohrs (Eyebeam Fellow). The Dead Record Office explores the historical and fictitious relationship between sound and warfare.
AUDiNT is adapting to the tactical battlefield of twenty-first century networks and capitalizing on their viral dynamics by systematically uploading the research archive they have compiled over the past 60 years probing the hauntological power of sonic weaponry. In opening the archive they hope to realize their new mandate of arming the public with sonic weaponry so that it does not become the sole preserve of the military-entertainment complex. With its dark science and sonically dissonant content, AUDiNT’s Dead Record Office is the location from which this viral transfer begins.
