Bagpipes to no-wave composers…

Scentscapes to contemporary Indonesian gamelan…

A NYC noise figurehead to a forefather of ambient electronics…

24-HOUR DRONE 2018 spanned genres, continents and centuries in honor of one of the most ancient forms of ritual and communion.

Escape the tight hands of time in a long-form, endurance homage to sound. An all-encompassing, immersive event, 24-HOUR DRONE features musicians and sound artists experimenting with sustained tones, creating a full twenty-four hours of unbroken sound.

Droners are free to come and go over the twenty-four hours, but those who make the commitment to this long-duration work will be rewarded with the intangible feeling of meditative contentment, pure bliss, and communal collaboration.

Sound as Experience. Sound as Installation. Sound without the tight hands of Time. To honor sound in a space that enhances it and places it in a long-form time schedule that allows it to expand.

Explore. Experiment. Exchange.
