Experience the wonder of tone as musicians are dotted throughout the space, some even a
wander, playing their instrument of choice in whatever their own style has become with one
simple shared rule – they can only use three different notes, the trinity. Ultimate freedom
within ultimate boundaries.
We can trace the use of sustained tones from ancient traditions to the contemporary, across
multiple subcultures, chest crushing sub-bass, avant-garde eccentricity, sound weaponry
and navigating fervent mysticism.
The drone, a sustained sound, requires neither chord nor band, representing - via its infinite
pliability and accessibility - the ultimate folk music: a potent audio tool of personal
liberation. Immersion in hypnotic and repetitive sounds allows us to step outside of
ourselves, be it chant, standing right up against the PA for yet another soporific sound
world, or a full headphone immersion.
These experiences are akin to an audio portal - a sound vehicle, that takes you out and in, to
help silence the hum and fizz of the unceasing inner voice.
Join us on Friday 17th for culture night as we explore this aural expression of a universal hum
we can only hope to fleetingly channel...which exists outside of us, but also - paradoxically -
within us all;
