Swiss Drone MP3

The new entry at term (, the occasional netlabel for experimental music that’s a branch of musician Taylor Deuree’s 12k label, is a half-hour drone recorded just last month by Swiss musician Pe Lang. Drones are categorized more often by flavor than by structure. This one has, as its key ingredient, a static (as in noise, not as in stasis) texture that suggests either rain or a needle on vinyl (MP3). Of course, in an age as technologically mediated as ours, don’t both those possible interpretations have the same basic impact on the listener: a mix of romance and mild annoyance? The title of the piece, “Shellac,” tips the scales toward the surface noise of early analog recording technology. More info on Pe Lang at
