Drone Progression//


Performance during launch https://youtu.be/zRGmY7Z4hWk


          This is not a two-(wo)man show.

          This is a collaborative work between two artists who did not know each other until the day of 
              production.


          This is not its final form.

          This is an experiment of medium and form, using ceramic and electronic components, to 
             produce new sounding instruments.


Drone Progression, is an appropriation of the musical concept of harmonic progression. Drone is supposed to be steady, or the base sound of a music composition. Progression is the act of creating series of chord changes to create the harmony of the piece. The auditory experience therefore that this piece will try to achieve is the relay between stasis and mobility of either the object of listening (sound from the ceramic components, the electronic assemblage, or other appendages that makes the sounding) or the act of listening (as the audience can go around and within the installation to experience the work).

In 2009, Gerecho started exploring open source materials for electronics, which redirected his interest to media and sound art.
