Drone Day Installation in the parking lot of the Palace Grand
Drone Day . Every year since 2014 , on the last Saturday of May , experimental musicians across Canada and the world have gathered in small groups and online to create new worlds of ambient sound together in celebration of all things drone and droning . This year , nine Whitehorse musicians ventured to a remote quarry to bring musical drones to the woods and mountains . The Drone Day installation immersively re-creates that experience , bringing listeners back in time to that misty day in the mountains with a quadraphonic , surround sound and video installation using the audio captured on that day . Soak in the sounds , and get lost : synthesizers , singing bowls , accordion , theremin , and saxophone .
