What is Drone Cinema? Drone Cinema draws its inspiration from a wide range of sources, from the mid-century experimental films of Stan Brakhage and Jordan Belson , the hurdy-gurdy used in Early Music, the tambura of Indian music, to the minimalist drones of La Monte Young and Terry Riley and the recent film genre called Slow Cinema. Drone Cinema filmmakers offer their vision of what sonic drones look like. Drone Cinema filmmakers transmute sonic drones into moving images. Cascone refers to Drone Cinema as “transcendigital” media.” Transcendigital media is conjured through active imagination instead of being driven by software,” Cascone said. A member of the audience at the first festival in Leiden commented: “Drone cinema is a lot like the visions I have in a flotation tank.”
