mR « Inner EP »

Droning has quite a negative connotation that bodes ill for anything tagged with it. I have always felt uneasy with this style of music, especially because there is a close link to ambient and space music. There are different styles within this theme - I can count at least three different forms that can be distinguished by the sounds that are used. Let's call them tribal drone, industrial drone and space drone. Tribal drone used traditional instruments (like the bagpipe, didgeridoo or tambura) to create the drones, while industrial and space drone used artificial sounds to create drone but let's call the space drones cleaner and somewhat more uplifting while industrial drones are dirtier, noisier. Of course, this is overly simplifying the drone. Most of the time drone bores me soon enough, so I prefer my drone to be rather part of something greater.
This here is an example of space drone and it's shortness is an advantage in my eyes…
Inner EP was released by Italian netlabel Type Konnection on 5th June 2013. It is provided in high quality sound at 48 kHz in 24bit encoding.
