DRONE-MIND // MIND-DRONE – Volume 4   LP

"travelling with
Drone Records around the world to the MINDs of artists
creating drones… "

 

 

The LP-series from Drone Records
is dedicated to the Drones of the World, and the
Drones of our Minds. A kind of continuation of the
(almost legendary) Drone 7"-series, with artwork based
on huge paintings by British artist PETE GREENING.

This
series shows the various sides of todays experimental
drone-music. 

 

Drone
Music is seen as more than a mere 'music style', it
expresses an approach to perceive & understand the
world. DRONE-MIND and MIND-DRONE build a circle of diverse
inter-relations. 

The Drone as a metaphor for everything that vibrates, that
releases energy – from atoms and elementary particles to
the hum of the earth and the universe.  

The Drone
as an entity that connects everthing that exists within
our own "mind-space", perception and self.

KIRILL PLATONKIN : emotional power drones of a higher beauty

This artist from Blagoveshchensk (the very east
Amur region of Russia)
excites with two Guitar-Drone pieces showing a very
'direct' mixing (no fading), revealing a highly
energetic, yet completely elevating character…."a free
interpretation of a magic flight on some air or space
transport" (the artist's description about one of the
tracks).

JEREMIE MATHES: cavernous metal tank drones

A drone newcomer
from France
(who is currently living in Cambodia) with so far three
great releases on Mystery Sea / Basses
Freq. – using field recordings as a basis… on
"Uunartoq Qeqertop", his contribution for MIND-04, we
hear raw materials that were collected in an reverberant
metal tank, reaching out for "density, emptiness,
accumulation, disintegration, evolving with altered
collages and processed sound from the original material
" [Jeremie Mathes]

ILIOU PERSIS: surrealistic drones inspired by the
psychology of masks

"… an enormous
amount of power appears to explode from some silent part
of my brain and I look at myself behaving more
animalistic than an animal, less human than a walking
god." [quote from the artist]

A highly
interesting musician and anthropologist from Portugal
is behind this project who is fascinated with the
culturual & psychological implications of MASKS,
which can transform the carriers consciousness in a
strong way. The long track for MIND-04 is a journey into
fascinating subconscious areas transformed into sound.

ROMAN KHARKOVSKY:  melancholic

nightshade drones

With this
pseudonym we welcome the very first artist from South
Asia (Pakistan)
on Drone Records, who is closing the new Drone-MIND
circle with two wonderful melancholic drift &
dreamscapes, phantasizing about the nightly atmosphere
at the bank of a certain river in the Ukraine…"Roman
Kharkovsky is an entity of higher spiritual intelligence
that belongs to Kharkov, city of Ukraine, and keeps
playing music through the winds of Kharkov to Dnieper
river to carpathian mountains and all the way to the
black sea." [quote from the artist]
