Drone Ensemble are pleased to announce that, in September 2018, we will be exhibiting at Workplace Gallery, as part of a joint commission between Workplace and TUSK Festival. This is an exciting venture for us and has encouraged the Ensemble to shift into new territory; placing further emphasis on the aesthetic of what we produce, in conjunction with the sonic elements. Most Drone Ensemble members have fine art backgrounds; this exhibition enables us to apply our joint knowledge, skills and explore the place where the visual and sonic may intersect.

After a very successful night at the BOILERHOUSE, a fantastic, open and highly acoustic venue within The Quadrangle at Newcastle University, we are on a bit of a high. A three-hour continuous set evolved as the sky darkened; providing both meditative and (at times) intense drone for the audience.  

 

We were honoured to play with a number of talented musicians, performers and sound makers and would like to thank Rob Blazey, John Bowers, Charlie Dearnley, Me Lost Me, Ben Jeans Houghton & Tim Shaw. 

Many thanks to Jill Bennison for helping co-ordinate the event.
