Dronechoir combines unfamiliar collaborators with an unrehearsed performance that continuously reshapes itself through space-specific movement directions, physically foregrounding specific singers at different points in the carefully-composed piece, bringing depth to the listener’s experience by challenging comfort barriers and introducing a heightened sense of engagement with the performance.
Arone Dyer has presented over 10 Dronechoir performances since 2015, from Hudson, NY, to Berlin, Germany, with anywhere from 4 to 24 vocalists, and most recently presented a successful collaboration with poet Mahogany L. Browne for Ecstatic Music Festival in NYC.

Booker Stardrum is a composer, percussionist, producer, and educator. His compositions are sculptural, carved from the dense layering of instruments and manipulated samples, a pantonal harmonic sense, and an intuitive approach to rhythm. Stardrum has released three solo records.

Weston Minissali is a composer and synthesizer player living in Brooklyn. He primarily writes/performs/releases with the microtonal pop band Erica Eso, with a forthcoming LP on NNA. He has toured throughout North America and Europe with other bands such as Cloud Becomes Your Hand, VaVatican and Trumpet Trumpet Synthesizer.
