|This year at Burning Man there was a nighttime aerial drone display in tribute to Larry Harvey, the founder of Burning Man who died earlier this year. The music was composed and performed by Joep Beving.
Here's a note on the YouTube post about the concept of the performance.

As dusk fell over Black Rock City, 600 luminous drones rose into a hypnotic display of technological choreography, accompanied by the poignant keys of Joep Beving. The drones were guided by a specially made algorithm that simultaneously allows both individual choice and movement as a group.
The videography and editing are excellent. Very thoughtful piece. They had lots of good weather this year on the playa and this particular night appears to be windless--perfect for their flight. Go Full Screen and enjoy this. ~z
