  • Completed Suite of 1 minute Microdrones

    Hi!
    I am excited to say that I finished the Microdrone Suite, a collection of 33 one minute drone pieces. The album is titled "by a thousand pricks and tiny lacerations", and is available for free download at Bandcamp.



    This collects all of the Microdrones that I released on SoundCloud, as well as 22 new drones. I really enjoyed working within the constraint of one minute, and creating an atmosphere in that short amount of time.

    Thanks! I hope you enjoy!

    I like a lot of these. Setting some constraints can be a very fruitful way of working.

      Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed!
      Actually, some other members of the forum here showed interest in also making short, constrained, pieces (when I first mentioned the microdrones in my introduction post), so I have been planning to start a thread for people to post short ambient/soundscape/drone pieces, though I have been trying to figure out the best place for the thread (member releases? challenges?).

        Very good set, it pleases me a lot.

        And your track titles are very intriguing - semantically fuzzy, what allows for many (over)interpretations...
        I really admire your ability to construct tension and atmosphere in 60 seconds - which is often attack time
        of layer sounds in my tracks ;)
        Maybe some day I will try to express myself in such microform, maybe using sonifications only as additional constraint.
        But now I can only say - BRAVO! :listening:

          Thank you so much! I am glad that you are enjoying the pieces! Making these was a great deal of fun, and also allowed me to explore a number of different techniques/methods/combinations, which I have then started to include in my longer form work. I would say that my recent piece "Books Made to Sell on Television" incorporates a lot of these discoveries.

                  Congrats on a very good review. I'm listening to "Nectar From a Stone" now - very nice.

                        A remarkable collection, and an intriguing concept! I'd love to have a pop at some myself for the microdrone thread. Excellent work! :thumbsup:
