John Cale’s lifelong love affair with drones

From theguardian.com:

This weekend Velvet Underground founding member John Cale will unleash an art installation that tries to redeem the word “drone”. Drones are today synonymous with war and surveillance. They are autonomous flying objects that can fire weapons at (presumed) terrorists, or film city life for the security services. It appears drones are going to become an ever-more visible part of our lives. No wonder artists are intrigued by these robotic aircraft. A video installation at this year’s Edinburgh festival combined the image of the electronic drone with the “drone” of Scottish bagpipes.
