Throughout America’s experience with secret intelligence, sound was the chief medium in which information was culled. Eavesdropping, wiretaps, SONAR, the deciphering of radio signals (open air and encrypted), and the planting of “bugs” comprised the bulk of the nation’s intelligence gathering effort. Yet in this information / cyber era, as intelligence organs have vied to keep pace with breathtaking developments in technology, the nature of collection has changed; no longer purely aural, the “sounds” of intelligence are increasingly electronic.

While Korea has a rich cultural heritage, the successes of today are a result of a mix of artistic, business, and technological forces, stripping away old constraints and empowering creators and audiences like never before.
