“Anxiety is best conceptualized as a future-oriented cognitive-affective-somatic state, the prominent feature being a sense of uncontrollability focused on possible future threat, danger, or other upcoming, potentially negative events.” The sound of a circular drone that one cannot necessarily see but hears in the present, is a constant reminder of policing, control or a strike that may come at
any time in the future, unexpectedly. Outside the windows, the soundscape created by drones bring the future into the present as a felt effect, whereas drone vision is directed towards staving off a future event through violence. Behind the curtains, constant drone surveillance has created a widespread culture of fearful apprehension, to the extent that the sound of whirring drones trigger varying consequences for the social dynamics of communities as well as, mental and bodily responses for individuals in advance of a drone strike having actually taken place. This work intends to use possible sonic scenarios with a spatial interface, in relation to Schuppli’s Uneasy Listening, to explore the relationship between military technologies and their collateral effects in present and future forms.
