The concert »A Study into 21st Century Drone Acoustics« is part of the exhibition »GLOBAL CONTROL AND CENSORSHIP«.


What kind of engines are drones equipped with? What do they sound like? What are the psychological effects of the sounds in areas of conflict?

»A Study into 21st Century Drone Acoustics« is an auditive investigation by composer Gonçalo F. Cardoso (Discrepant) and designer Ruben Pater (Drone Survival Guide). Based on the field recordings of 17 drone types – ranging from small consumer drones to large military drones – the composition focuses on the conceptual (sound) life and (sound) death of an aerial drone machine in the 21st century.
