My sound art piece Dron:ing will be part of SIGHT.SOUND [INTERACTION] 8 in Baltimore (USA).

SIGHT.SOUND [INTERACTION] is an annual exhibit founded and curated by jason.sloan, faculty in the Maryland Institute College Of Art’s INTERACTIVE ARTS Department & Sound Art program coordinator. This annual exhibition brings together a wide selection of local and international artists exploring the language of interaction, electronics, sound and video all within within the framework of self-expression.

I created this composition called Dron:ing originally for the third edition of the Hydrophonia sound art festival. Hydrophonia is a festival dedicated to hydrophonic sound art and raising public awareness of how man-made ocean noise affects marine life. The festival has taken place in October 2010 in Barcelona, Spain.
