Drones, Part 1

Sounds Curious Podcast

May 6 2020 • 44 mins

This week we go deep, deep down to begin an exploration of the musical phenomenon of drones. Beginning with an invitation to listen, deeply, to some drones created by your host using some recent instrument libraries released free from Spitfire Labs, home of Spitfire Audio. Here, three samples from the "London Atmos" pack help set the scene for our series of episodes exploring the musical, psychological and cultural impact of sonic drones. This gentle introduction will be followed with a series of episodes exploring drones from sources both traditional and surprising!
