Red Bull Music Academy Presents: Drone Activity in Progress
For one night, we will turn the spectacular Knockdown Center in Queens into a temple of thundering noise with some of today’s most daring sound artists. Performers include Stephen O’Malley of Sunn O))) (performing solo and with his duo project KTL), influential noise artist Prurient, guitarist and composer Alan Licht, Hunter Hunt-Hendrix, the frontman and dogma director of transcendental black metal band Liturgy, and Sonic Youth founding member Kim Gordon, who will present her collaborative project with Bill Nace, Body/Head. Visuals come courtesy of the creative minds behind Nuit Blanche, so expect a multi-sensory experience of sorts.
