Drone symphony - Yiannis Loukos

Yiannis Loukos

“Drone symphony” is a sound experiment based on the sound/noise that is produced by the flying drones. It is a symphony without musical instruments. The music is played by drones, contemporary flying machines that produce sound/noise. Drone symphony proposes to re-imagine drones and their position in the public space, through a coordinated and choreographed live musical performance. Controlled by its respective pilot, each drone flies around the space in individual patterns that create a unique noise sequence. Combined, the sound of the drones is arranged into a symphony, played by unusual suspects. The project deals with our position in the public space during a private time, like a lockdown. Could we replace our physical attendance by using drones and digital machines in the public space? How could we revisit these annoying flying machines of surveillance and play with them?
