This panel will consist of a 40min artist presentation by AUDiNT (Steve Goodman [Kode9] / Toby Heys) including a reading, followed by Q&A session with members of the audience.


Hailing from Toronto, Jamie Abugov, aka DJ Tusk, is also a designer and member of the Lighta! Sound Bass Station.


AUDINT is a research cell investigating how ultrasonic, sonic and infrasonic frequencies are used to demarcate territory in the soundscape and the ways in which their martial and civil deployments modulate psychological, physiological and architectural states. Re-formatted in 2008, AUDINT currently consists of Toby Heys and Steve Goodman. For the New Forms Festival the history of AUDiNT – since its formation by 3 members of the Ghost Army in 1945 – will be presented in the form of a multi-media presentation. The live composition will patch together a mix of the whispered and the unsound into an audible journey that – links the underground groove of the Large Hadron Collider with the vaults of the Bank of Hell ; connects the Dead Record Network with the Phantom Hailer ; and traces the evolution of the Wandering Soul Tapes to the viral dynamics of the online spectreware named IREX2.
