The Drone Ensemble performance at The Great North Museum: Hancock as part of An Artistic Encounter

Many thanks to all who came to experience The Drone Ensemble play at The Great North Museum: Hancock as part of An Artistic Encounter.

Unfortunately I did not get the chance to see any of the other artworks properly as we were so busy setting up the instruments and warming up for the performance, but the whole evening seemed to go down very well with the audience. 

Showing such a great mix of artworks within the museum collection may introduce a new audience to The Great North Museum: Hancock. Likewise, those familiar with the museum may have been introduced to new artistic experiences. An Artistic Encounter may have stimulated regular visitors may to view the collection in new ways. Hopefully, this all bodes well for the possibility of more of these kind of events in the future.

Playing in these different contexts gives The Drone Ensemble a focus for each performance, and we adapt in a site-specific manner and according to the conditions and themes of each event. I find this an exciting way to work and it helps us progress and vary our performances.
