Brighton Festival: Lou Reed Drones

'Lou Reed Drones is an installation of his guitars and amps in feedback mode: 24 strings set in motion from the push of magnetically driven cones; 360 partial harmonics colliding against each other, cascading, uniting, elevating, rising up like New York skyscrapers along the Hudson.

Introducing gain and sculpting sonic frequencies, a feedback loop is created with each guitar and its respective amplifier. Their overlapping harmonic structures produce pseudo-acoustic notes in which a beating sensation is then set in motion. Lou Reed Drones is a visceral, emotional and spiritual experience...'

Stunning metal machine music in a disused church.

The only concert I've been to where they thrust earplugs at you on the way in, and where they had beds inside.

It's on every afternoon til Tuesday (and it's free).

Might try and get some acid and go again.

Almost certainly the only thing I'll see in this year's Brighton Festival.
