Serving the San Francisco Bay Area New Music Community

Sat, Dec 10 2011 8:00 PM

Droneshift: A large scale collaborative drone music event organized each year by Matt Davignon. Over 40 musicians will gather to contribute to a continuous 3 hour sound, each adding their acoustic or electronic elements here and there, and weaving their sounds together to create gradually shifting tapestries of music. The performance will continuously evolve from completely acoustic music to electric ambiance to post-industrial noise with many mesmerizing points in between.

Note: Concert will begin at exactly 8pm.
