Expect to be mesmerised by this “visceral, emotional and spiritual installation” (New York Live Arts) in a provocative sound experience featuring electric guitars belonging to the late guitarist and frontman of legendary The Velvet Underground, Lou Reed.

The sonic range produced by the feedback loop installation has been described as both a “beautiful siren-song and... ugly, as the guitars scream and growl.” (The Argus UK).

Presented by Reed’s partner and fellow artist Laurie Anderson and performed by his guitar technician Stewart Hurwood, Lou Reed Drones is both a tribute to Reed’s exploratory genius and an invitation to audiences to commune with the unique sounds in whatever way that works best for them. Hurwood says: “Sit, lay, listen, meditate, sleep, cry, dance, chant, perform Tai Chi – whatever they get emotionally from the sounds they can react to.”

People attending this installation will be exposed to loud noise and are advised to use ear protection.
Lou Reed Drones will also feature as part of Laurie Anderson’s Here Comes the Ocean.
