More Info:

Drone Mass was commissioned by ACME in 2015 in celebration of it's 10th anniversary and was premiered by the late Jøhann Jøhannsson, ACME, and Roomful of Teeth in the Temple of Dendur in the Sackler Wing at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. According to Jøhannsson, "Drone Mass is a 60-minute contemporary oratorio which fuses the sounds of string quartet, electronics and vocals, and is inspired by texts from the Nag Hammadi library, sometimes referred to as the Coptic Gospel of the Egyptians."
