Deep Sounds And Drones For A Tired Audience

by Volker Lankow



Drone music emphasizes the use of sustained or repeated sounds,notes, or tone-clusters – called drones. It is typically characterized by lengthy audio programs with relatively slight harmonic variations throughout each piece compared to other musics.

“We need tools for self-exploration. The drone allows us to rediscover our lighter, softer side in an often hostile world. It promotes happiness, compassion, and generates love. Drones are a uniting force, enhancing the health of body and soul.” (Mickey Hart)

On this album you find drones and soundscapes, you hear voices, long drawn out sounds that sometimes develop into ostinata.
I invite you to a deep and sonorous journey.

The music on this album is dedicated to Planet Earth.

Drones, Samples, Soundscapes, Percussions by Volker Lankow

Cover artwork by Steven Leak.
Steven created this work of art out of ice while I was playing a little streaming concert on THF Radio Berlin . This artwork was created during the second half of the radio concert, which is included as a bonus track on this album.

Thank you for this wonderful piece of art, Steven, which for me stands for transience.
