Background

DRONe provides an ongoing opprotunity to listen to and interact with soundscape continuously co-created by machines and humans. Without limits imposed by biological bodies machine is able to perform live endlessly and to be present in different places at the same time, while interaction with natural and human made sounds provides fallibility, unpredictability and creative potential which surpasses mechanical flawless perfection. This idea refers to modern psychoanalytic theories of mind, Pauline Oliveros' concept of deep listening and work of creative writers, like J.L. Borges and S. Lem.

Technical specifications
