Quartet for flying musical drones, robot percussion, and humans.
Drone Music examines themes of surveillance, short wave radio, AI, espionage, sacred ritual, pageantry, and patriotism using Musique concrète, 1 bit audio, minimalism, closely tuned sine waves, and samples of sirens, bugs, and Sousa marches.
Made with Matt Steinke and Bryan Ribas.
Featuring pilots Bryan Ribas, Lou Averbach, Gil Coranando, and Rickey White.
This project was supported in part by the City of Austin Cultural Arts Division and the Texas Commission for the Arts.
