For the sixth year in a row musicians from across the musical spectrum unite to create a continuous, uninterrupted, 28-hour drone of unified sound to raise money for Doctors Without Borders. The experts at Wikipedia say "Drone music is a minimalist musical style that emphasizes the use of sustained or repeated sounds... It is typically characterized by lengthy audio programs with relatively slight harmonic variations throughout each piece compared to other musics." Be part of a unique experience while supporting a just cause. Come by before work, after work, or both. Bring a pillow/blanket to make yourself comfortable. Spend the night with us. We will be airing the entire performance on KFAI and streaming online so you can enjoy it even if you can't be with us here in Minneapolis. Direct your browsers to to watch the webstream, get an up to the minute schedule, listen to recordings of our previous drones, and donate directly to Doctors Without Borders.
