OHRDRONE (Oliver Blank & Toby Heys) – Drone Chamber 2
February 1st, 2014 – CIVIC Space (411 Pelissier Street, Windsor, Ontario) – Exhibition Runs until February 28th (Schedule Below)
A drone in sonic terms is the least memorable type of music produced and yet in terms of duration, it manifests gently over time through subtle variations. The drone in military terms is a technology which surveils, exposes, and punishes the actions of those in a public space. OHRDRONE is a research group founded to examine the proliferation of drones, and our potential for love and compassion for these drones as a disempowering force.
OHRDRONE is coming to Civic Space for the month of February. Beginning on February 1st the space will be converted into a DRONE CHAMBER for use by the community of Windsor, Ontario throughout the month.
On Saturday, February 1st one of the founding members of OHRDRONE will teach attendees how to listen to the DRONE with complete compassion before leading a morning DRONE HEARING. From 2–4pm, he will lead a Sound Walk as a way of establishing a sustainable DRONE practice in your daily life. In the evening a final DRONE HEARING, with instruction and guidance, will be in the DRONE CHAMBER.
