The drone forms the basis of much world music, from Early Music to Ragas to Folk Music to experimental electronic music, Drone Music places the viewer in a space that exists outside of time, inducing a transcendental state of consciousness and visions of ancient exotic landscapes infused with eastern philosophies.

On the surface Drone Cinema might share similar qualities with Slow Cinema, Structuralism & Minimalism but Drone Cinema eschews narrative altogether and instead focuses on micro-movements within the frame: monotonal structures, monochromatic radiations, hypnotic ganzfelds, slowly changing blur fields, light beams filled with particles of dancing dust — i.e., tiny visual nuances that often go unnoticed by casual observers.

For the festival we sought independent, unique and compelling work in film, experimental video and animation. All interested filmmakers and sound/media artists were encouraged to submit work for consideration. Even more than last year replied and it was a hard pick. And so it is with pleasure that we present to you the 2016 selection:

So If you are a fan of Sunn0))), La Monte Young, Tony Conrad, Phil Niblock, Terry Riley, Glenn Branca, Eliane Radigue, Indian Classical Music, Early Music, Stars of the Lid or any of the other Drone Music projects then you know what drones sound like — we are curious for you to see what these great artists think drones look like.

Looking forward to you viewing the selected works,

Kim Cascone
Director/Curator, Drone Cinema Film Festival
