WACO Reenactment


Audio Warfare

Artist Rod Dickinson will reconstruct the FBI's covert psychological warfare assault on the infamous Branch Davidian religious community in Waco, Texas, at a secret, remote location close to London, on Thursday 16 September.

In 1993, the FBI laid siege to the religious community led by David Koresh for 51 days, intimidating them with a continuous barrage of white noise, rock music and an array of repetitive sounds played at 110 decibels. Using first-hand testimonies from interviews with survivors and academic researchers, Dickinson will recreate some of these original sounds, which included babies crying, circling helicopters, high pitched rabbit screams and dentist drills. The reconstructed audio will be broadcast at 100 decibels at a remote location surrounded by wire fencing and bright floodlights.

The reconstructed audio from the psychological warfare siege will also be streamed over the internet in real time for 24 hours a day for over a month at: www.wacoreenactment.org

Explosions can change everything. Potential is the perception of knowledge. Knowledge is the predictability of tendencies which reoccur most often. A fact occurs more often than a non-fact for whatever organism is perceiving that information at that given point.

Facts are frequently reoccurring tendencies which are used as reference points for the intellectual measuring of information. This explosion about things is why there is a transexpansion that qualifies the signification of potential as the perception of knowledge.
