2012's Drone for the End of Time was such a blast that we've decided to make it an annual event in celebration of the winter solstice. In the same spirit of solstice celebrations throughout history, Solace is a 12-hour participatory drone conceived as a moment of respite from all forms of holiday chaos, and an opportunity to process all that has happened in the year that has passed; all are welcome.
As with last year's event, Solace follows in the footsteps of Medium, an open member drone collective (founded by Todd Carter, Brent Gutzeit, and Doug Lussenhop) that has assembled on New Year's Eves for annual 24-hour drones since 1997. With due deference, we will adopt Medium's guidelines for our event:
1: DO NOT DISTURB THE DRONE
2: ENTER & EXIT THE DRONE UNDETECTED (i.e., fade in/fade out)
3: NO DISTORTION/NOISE
4: DO NOT DISTURB THE DRONE
So grab an instrument* and join the drone or just come to listen and clear your mind! Join us for an hour or the full twelve. Libations will be available throughout the event.
SATURDAY DECEMBER 21ST
FREE (DONATIONS ACCEPTED)
*There will be a PA available to plug into; bring your own modest amplification if you feel it is necessary; if you require electricity, please bring along a power strip or two.
