about

1) Drone: A musical effect. A drone effect can be achieved through a sustained sound or through repetition of a note.

2) Boredom: Something that we were taught that it is not healthy.

Being bored has a bad reputation, and this is constantly reinforced by the ongoing request to rise productivity and the unlimited supply and availability of stimuli (Candy Crush or a storm of Instagram stories, you name it) whereas being actually bored is just considered to be a symptom of ill-being.

"A generation that cannot bear boredom will be a generation of little men, of men unjustly divorced from the slow process of nature, of men, in whom every vital impulse runs slowly, as if they were cut flowers in a vase." (Bertrand Russel)
