Headphones

2004, 7:09 min, color, sound

In Headphones, Cokes investigates the social value of music as a means of channeling violence, before and after its economic profitability. Animating a text by music theorist and economist Jacques Attali, author of Noise: The Political Economy of Music (1977), Cokes argues that music "piracy" is not a crime or aberration, but a logical result of the marketing of music reproduction technologies.

Text: Jaques Attali. Music: Static. Software Design: Joshua Goldberg, Hanno Leichtmann. Animator/Editor: Scott Pagano. Appropriated Material: Internet Feed.
