Writes Cokes, "Evil.16: Torture.Musik animates excerpts from an article by Moustafa Bayoumi that was originally published in The Nation magazine on December 26, 2005. While surveying the topic I found this article to be a key and cogent text in a body of reportage and scholarship devoted to the military use of music and sound as a weapon, a form of psychological manipulation, or torture. The soundtrack features a playlist of songs or artists documented as being used in U.S. spy-ops and torture programs."
