Drifting through and abstract cityscape: City of Drones is an interactive digital environment developed by FIELD with musician John Cale and speculative architect Liam Young.

Charting the story of a lost drone drifting through an abstract cityscape, players pilot a virtual craft to explore an infinite urban landscape. Samples from Cale’s original soundscape compositions echo across the landscape as we see the city through the eyes of the drone, buzzing between the buildings, drifting endlessly, in an ambient audio visual choreography.
