The music of John Cale converged with the speculative architecture visions of Liam Young at the Barbican’s Digital Revolution exhibition this past September. It was the first-ever drone orchestra performance and from a whirlpool of collective, creative energy, came a swarm of unmanned flying objects with the express purpose not to kill, but instead to entertain.

“LOOP>>60Hz: Transmissions from the Drone Orchestra was a collaboration between airborne architecture and music,” explains Cale, a multi-instrumentalist, and one of the founding members of the Velvet Underground. In a new documentary, above, The Creators Project captures Cale and Young’s unlikely partnership, which includes an immersive live music and drone performance and its accompanying online experience, City of Drones, developed in partnership with FIELD.
