DRONE DRAMA: MUSIC FOR THE DEAD full video. American composer Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardt’s eleven chapter video based on his album was filmed on San Francisco Peninsula 2016-2017. Marquardt's chapter titles seemed to directly address the social contradictions in a drone society: income disparity, environmental catastrophe, epic cultural upheaval. So I fully used them in each chapter.
Despite California’s free-wheeling, rebellious US government attitude, the state is the world's fifth largest economy supported by aerospace industry, bio-tech systems, military defense contracting corporations. Silicon Valley's highly militarized information corporations grew out of the Vietnam Nam War machine home based on the San Francisco Peninsula. The war machine morphed from the local, world's greatest WWII Alameda shipbuilders. This evolved from the wealth of California's San Joaquin Valley which supplies 25% of world's food. Big agriculture business has subsequently moved into the valley, and, having snatched the sea of wild grasses, wild flowers and the land of various peoples, has created more (unreported) crime than anywhere in the United States.
