Onde Nostre presents DRIFT music by Monkeys’ in a Barrell

“What’s there to do when you are stuck at home or in your studio for almost two years with a good friend, a lousy drum kit and an out of tune guitar? you buy a cheap sound card, get inspired by zio baffa and you lie down notes.
A surf film was the start, collaging over 500 films, from all over the world was the end.”

Drift is an immersive audio video performance.
It’s an exploration of the world today with all its contradictions and contaminations. Images and sound compose a collage where boundaries are ephemeral.
It all started during the pandemic times where the only chance to travel was through internet, archive and memories.

A Block10 and a Wolf Studio production.
