Drones I

My initial purpose for creating drone music was somewhat utilitarian. I was searching for beatless walls of sound to use in meditation, and to help retain focus while studying. I ended up creating some partially generative experiments, each of which were around 60 minutes long. They mostly consisted of slow arpeggiations and single chords, with various oscillating effects.

The track “F m 7” is an excerpt of one of these experiments. Parts of the chord were played randomly across 4 tracks. The samples were then slowed down, and run through oscillating high and low pass filters.
