AUDiNT (short for "audio intelligence") is an artistic research unit consisting of Steve Goodman, Toby Heys and Jon Cohrs, that documents and directs the military-disciplinary use of sound, contrasting the supposed "good vibrations" of musical entertainment with the "bad vibes" of conflict, control and paranoia.
Steve Goodman runs the record label Hyperdub and produces electronic music as Kode9. He is senior lecturer in Sonic Culture at the University of East London. His recent book Sonic Warfare (MIT Press, 2010) is a theoretical investigation of sound, affect and power. Additionally, he was a member of the autonomous research collective, the Ccru (Cybernetic culture research unit).
Toby Heys produces music, sound / video installations and web projects as a member of Battery Operated and robotic/ electronic media projects as a member of The KIT Collaboration . He runs the sound / video label Cocosolidciti. Recently he finished a year-long "visiting scholar" post in the Music department of New York University and is currently an AHRC scholar finishing a PhD at John Moores University in England as well as a resident artist at Eyebeam in New York.
Jon Cohrs is a recording engineer who runs Spleenless Mastering and a visual artist based in Brooklyn, NY. Recently, he created OMG I’m on .TV, an analog Pirate TV station during the digital transition that was used as a reference in a Supreme Court amicus brief on creativity and copyright. Currently, he is a fellow at Eyebeam Art + Technology Center and teaches at Parsons, The New School for Design.
