LONGY: Exquisite Drones

Conceived & performed by Wick Simmons, Exquisite Drones is a work for cello and electronics with music composed by Conrad Tao, inti figgis-vizueta, Jack McGuire, after the drawing game “exquisite corpse,” and films by multimedia artist Laurie Olinder. Wick turns the group-work of the game, first used by surrealist artists to create bizarre and intuitive drawings, into three compositions written in isolation by composers, expressing  their personal relationships to long-held tones in spaces of humming, growling, Morse code, cacophony, & words that cease to mean anything.
