John Cale is to showcase a new work at London’s Barbican Theatre in September.

The musician’s new “audio-visual collaboration” is called LOOP@@60Hz: Transmissions From The Drone Orchestra.

According to a report in London’s Evening Standard, the work will use flying drones to carry speakers to project sound, as well as making mechanical noises as they hover over the audience.

The project has been devised by Cale along with architect Liam Young.

Cale has said he aims to free the drones from their usual associations with surveillance and military uses to make them “choreographed, disembodied instruments which take flight in the auditorium to create a profoundly immersive live music performance”, according to the Barbican.

The performances take place on Friday, 12 and Saturday 13, September 2014 at 8pm. Tickets cost between £20 – 25.
