Musicians against music torture


trent-reznorMusicians and human rights group Reprieve launched a “silent protest” against the use of music for torture and interrogation. For example, the playlists at places like Guantanamo Bay and other US military prisons/bases has included such hot platters as Deicide’s “Fuck Your God” and the theme song from Barney The Purple Dinosaur. Musicians like Trent Reznor want to stop the insanity.

Chloe Davis, a researcher for Reprieve, told Danger Room the Zero dB campaign was planning to work with prominent musicians to lobby the incoming administration.

“It is really important that we seize the chance to alert Obama to this practice,” she said. “… I think there will be people on the other side trying to catch Obama’s attention, saying we need to be tough. We’re trying to counter that message.”
