Drone MP3(s)

The Drones Blog is what it says it is: blogs in drone form, regularly updated like audio diary entries, with little to no explanatory text. The site’s brief manifesto of an introduction states: “We do not want to know from where the sound comes. We don’t care about ‘projects’, ‘albums’, ‘releases and ‘formats’. We want to produce and listen to SOUND and let it penetrate our MINDS.” The emphasis is in the original, though the music featured on the website, which appears to emanate from France, opts for killing with dread, not volume. The most recent entry, dated July 26 (MP3), is an extended hallucination built from field recordings and production effects, not so much a drone as a steady stream of amelodic, arrhythmic, real-world noise tweaked until it sounds otherworldly.
