Why do war and music go so well together? Music plays a decisive role in war propaganda and warmongering, and – most recently – in the soundtracks of beastly execution videos. On the other side, much of music promotes peace and non-violence, as well as something akin to musical mourning. The publication compiles theoretical reflections, written collages and interviews on the connections between war, technology, and music.
