Sound as destruction at the ESA's Large European Acoustic Facility

Sound as destruction at the ESA's Large European Acoustic Facility

The idea of sound as being lethal, destructive in and of itself is the stuff of fictions yet this facility exists to test sound's limits. There is something transformative in thinking of any sensory phenomena amplified to levels which can endanger matter or life. The point at which a medium of communication becomes a weapon is strangely fascinating. It begs we re-imagine the familiar which is never a bad thing.
