OUT NOW !    –    
DRONE-MIND // MIND-DRONE – Volume 5
   LP

 

The series shows the various sides of
todays experimental drone-music, especially focusing
on newcomers and less well known acts from the world
wide scene

 

"In an era when so much content is driven by
personality, we offer instead the challenge, or the
respite, of interacting with sound on its own terms."
[CLADE,]

This
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 Drone 7"-series, with
artwork based on huge paintings by British artist PETE
GREENING. Drone Music is seen as more than a mere
'music style', it expresses an approach to perceive
and 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.  

 

Four
"Drones" on one record! Volume FIVE
(MIND-05)

OUT NOW (Oct. 2016) and features:   

GYDJA      ҉     CLADE,

MONOCUBE      ҉     YRSEL

 

GYDJA: (New Zealand)
 
Enchanting female drone esoterica by an
artist who is also known through her stunning artworks for
COLD SPRING and other labels. Through magnetic winds and
metallic clouds the long track "Gjallarbru" creates a
wonderful secretful and sensitive atmosphere; very lonely
and frosty, like a cold and clear consciousness released
on a high mountain, on top of the world…

CLADE, (Scotland
/ USA)
Named after a notion taken from biology
science (=Monophylum), this duo is based in Scotland and USA,
alluring with very focused minimal drones on so far four
releases. The two tracks presented here stand out with
their use of somehow refractional, fibrous sounds, placed
on monotonus drones with a very sedative and insistent
effect…

MONOCUBE: (Ukraine)  This "ethereal drone" discovery from Ukraine
moves musically through endless spaces, creating
choral-like aural clouds and strange melodies =>
self-supporting drones with an incredible width, when even
the smallest particles of concrete microsound encountering
are exciting, entering into a heavenly "song of the
sirens" choir..

YRSEL : (France)  Another bi-national project is this
French-Swedish collaboration of JULIEN LOUVET (2:13 PM,
etc.) and C-J LARSGÅRDEN (ONDO),who released three albums
so far. Their track "Krstnhmnbrtncrt" consists of very
heavy, swallowing drones with atonal elements coming to
the surface, diffus and poisonous but also lulling you
into a deep (dead) sleep., slowly drowning in dense
humming waves of cryptic drones…
