An overview to the concept of ‘drone’ in music, illustrated with historic examples and contemporary artists.
A research project on the topic of ‘drone’ in collaboration with my colleague Miguel Negrão, following an invitation by Raviv Ganchrow to deliver a session about this topic within his weekly ‘Sound and Space’ seminar, held at the Institute of Sonology in The Hague, Netherlands.
The talk was given by Miguel on 9th May 2008. Below is the slideshow we made for this presentation and here we put together some further information. In addition, two of the volumes (025 and 027) of my mix series ‘From 20 to 20000 hz’ are devoted to the topic and could work as a complement to this research.
