dieTunes is an audio player which applies a corruption process to any played file automatically. By bringing playback-based decay to digital audio media, dieTunes allows that audio to attain a life, at the cost of an inevitable death.
In much the same way that a record player needle destroys the LP disc it plays, dieTunes applies its corruption process to the actual sample data of the playing file, leading to an irreparable degradation of that audio. Indeed, the parallel to the LP doesn't end there, as the sonic artefacts of the process sound quite like LP crackle.
dieTunes was created originally as a Mac application, in 2009. Below is an example of the dieTunes effect.
