What makes the biggest impact on me and on the project is learning about the artists who’ve participated in these choirs, gleaning their individual tone, timbre and stylistic tendencies into a greater sonic soup. ALL of the Dronechoir Alumni listed below are talented, dedicated musicians/performers/poets and artists of their own, please take some time to explore their repertoire!
