Sound as Terror

Sound as Terror  is an open and collaborative research project into sound as affect, with a current focus on military drone soundscapes and their effect on peoples everyday lives. Through research into humanitarian laws and regulations, first hand experience as well as definitions of sound as terror, we move from analysis and dialogue, into composing and sound actions. We use sound to enunciate social relationships and think of collaborative compositions as both physical forms of coming together, as well as explorations into sonic communication. Our work mostly takes the form of sound interactions and manifestations informed by in-depth research.

  • My practice is usually informed by social enquiry with a heterogenous approach to communication and design. Considering design as process and experience, emphasis is placed on collaborative modes of research, knowledge exchange and critical enquiry. I find that the potentials of design belong as much in the working structures as in the communicative outcomes, as they inevitably exist in conjunction. While graphic design and sonic communication in relation to public discourse are my main areas of focus, ways of communication are informed by research topic and often expressed through closely related mediums.
