From New York’s ISSUE Project Room:

The First Annual Drone Marathon will be a true exercise and experience curated by contemporary and past performers working with long sustained tones over extended durations of time. Modeled after the theories of La Monte Young, Tony Conrad, John Cage, and other experimental forefathers, the drone marathon is a living sound installation, built for those to meditate on an experience much like that of La Monte Young’s Dream House, Maryanne Amacher’s “Music for Sound Joined Rooms,” and the patience-testing performances of Brian Eno and Robert Fripp. Come join us for a communal experience in the world of drone and meditation.

The event will take place from 2 p.m. – midnight, and the schedule is as follows:

Ancient Ocean/Tom Carter/Century Plants – 2pm
Noveller/Shahin Motia (Oneida) duo – 3:30pm
Kyle Bobby Dunn (Solo) 4:30pm
Phill Niblock – 6pm
Tony Conrad – 8pm
Marcia Bassett (with Margarida Garcia, Aki Onda, & Barry Weisblat) – 10pm
