This is our hardcore. Red Bull Music Academy returns to the extraordinary Queens venue Knockdown Center for a reprise of last year’s Drone Activity In Progress. That night was almost solely based on avant-garde artists. This night will blow open the doors genre-wise to present a sampling of the most extreme recording artists in metal, techno, jazz, classical, noise, hip hop and beyond. Kranky’s ambient prince Tim Hecker, grindcore legends Napalm Death, Gunplay – the Maybach rapper with a Bible on the dash – and Scandinavian free jazzers The Thing all feature. Also set to appear: Wolf Eyes, Regis, Bastard Noise, Lubomyr Melnyk, Skullflower, Joe McPhee/Chris Corsano, Okkyung Lee, Clipping, Yoshiko Ohara, Reg Bloor, and Gnaw, with visuals provided by Nuit Blanche.
