Perhaps you’ve already noticed yesterday on your social media channels that Bill Drummond has been added to the line-up of Incubate 2011! That’s because 3VOOR12 already gave a scoop including some sneak previews for Incubate 2011, which you can read all about here (in Dutch). Hereby we also officialy announce that Bill Drummond will be present at this years festival for debate on DIY culture as well as his new project The17.
Bill Drummond is best known as co-founder of late 1980s avant-garde pop group The KLF and its 1990s “avant-art” media-manipulating successor, the K Foundation. With The KLF, Drummond scored a number of hits and wrote “The Manual”, a book on how to write a Number 1 hit. The K Foundation is notorious for burning a million pounds in 1994. Drummond’s newest work is The17, an ad hoc choir singing one of Drummond’s pieces. It is a reaction to pre-recorded music and specialises in improvised music.
