Participants

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


 

Dronechoir SYLLABA-Asheville, 17, Revolve Gallery Asheville, NC, June 6th, 2018.

None of these performers were familiar with the piece prior to the performance (aside from me, but can that just be a given from now on?)
