(Un) Pleasant Over Drones at Resound Falmouth 2011
Resound Falmouth 2011 was a three day festival of sound art, contemporary audio performance and installations that happened in Falmouth/Penryn in Cornwall UK March 25-27, 2011. The event was centered around the local community radio station Source FM. The event included presentations, talks and discussions with artists and curators who have been involved with a wide range of art work for broadcast and sonic reproduction. Part of the festival was the creation of the Audio CD “(Un) Pleasant Over Drones”, a collection of 60-second drone pieces composed by sixty six artists, including myself. The composition assembled from the contributed drones, is available as a free download from Resound or from Archive.org. A CDR of the piece was given to all visitors to the Resound event this year. In addition, there was a mass performance of the piece from car stereos on the morning of the last day of the festival, culminating with a drive by finale.
