Radioactive Halflife is a three part audio-montage of Cold War-era Yugoslav sounds, heard through a dense field of static and distortion, including the processed sounds of the bunker itself. Ghostly commands, military slogans and patriotic songs experience an uncanny, tormented afterlife following the obliteration of the state they served.

As visitors move from room to room they hear different stages of the piece and encounter different spatial arrangements, including one using technical manuals and blueprints found in the complex.
