SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Visuals at Drone Sleepover are essential to complete the immersive experience. They provide a visual counterpart to the mesmerizing drone sound, enriching the atmosphere and deepening emotional connections. Visuals become a focal point for contemplative listening, guiding the audience through an otherworldly journey. Here are some types of projections that would work well:

  • Abstract Visuals: Abstract, flowing, and morphing visuals. Think of soft, organic shapes and colors that blend and transform gradually.

  • Geometric Patterns: Intricate and mesmerizing geometric patterns can sync with the repetitive and hypnotic aspects of drone music, creating a visually stimulating yet meditative environment.

  • Slow Motion Video: Slow-motion video of various elements, such as flowing water, flames, etc, can create a soothing and immersive backdrop.

  • Interactive Visuals: Consider using interactive visuals that respond to the music or the movements of the audience. 

  • Soft Gradients and Color Washes: Gradual changes in colors and gradients.

  • Live Visual Mixing: For a more dynamic experience, live visual mixing or VJing can be employed, allowing the visuals to adapt in real time to the music and the atmosphere of the event.

​​

Stray away from text and narrative visuals as the projection's goal is to accompany the sounds and not over-power.
