    We had a film composer come give a lecture at my Uni and he spoke extensively about the use of music for war (about which he’s writing a book, which I’m looking forward to). Apparently, proper interrogators use specially composed torture music, and he played us a sample: Complex, sharp, in the same ranges as children screaming, and constantly, driftingly off-key and off-time. I wish I could get hold of a sample.


I'm a techno-musicologist, internet annotator, imagined community organizer.

I left my <3 in the digital global, but I reside in Cambridge, MA, where I'm from.

I represent like that.
