Music Gearheads Tech Talk / Re: What moves the drone?
« Last post by Seren on November 28, 2021, 11:00:05 AM »
Hi animapara,

I think the key to 'drones' is playing around with your sounds and experimenting - as well as listening to many different artists music to get a sense of what they do.

A slight shift in one parameter can affect the whole drone.

I tended to use different sounds that shifted in and through each other - or slightly different treatments of the same sound. for example, if you have 2 or three of those running at the same time you can vary the volume in each.

Oophoi was very good at both the still and the moving.

Music Gearheads Tech Talk / What moves the drone?
« Last post by animapara on November 27, 2021, 12:33:51 PM »
Hello there :)

https://soundcloud.com/andrew-bond-937682349/sound-1

https://soundcloud.com/andrew-bond-937682349/sound-2

Please, just listen to these two examples ... (both are exerpts from M. Grassow tracks, all rights and respect to him)

As i notice first example (Sound 1) is just a "static" drone. It stands and not moving ... it just like "free flying"

But second example (Sound 2) is drone that moves in some direction, some power drag it "forward" constantly.

Is it because detuning unison voices in synth, detuning layers and adding amplitude modulation (AM)?
(i don't think that it's because of effects like delay or reverb).

Am i missing something to get that movement? 

Any help would be appreciated so much.

Thank you.

So last Friday I decided to retire the music studio.


Wow Andy, That is one hell of a big step!

All my life I have lived in the moment. This moment that is eternal in its very own time.

When things are in front of you, even though you don't see them. When the world passes you by, but not time. Then eternity touches you.

I hope you like the music, here is the download link:

Arovane : Reihen
I have enjoyed Arovane's music such as Lilies & Tides from around 2000, wonderful electronica but now he has this new release on 12k.

Hammock : Elsewhere
From shoe gazing to modern classical to this beautiful guitar driven ambient.

Noveller : Arrow
I was browsing Steve Roach's Bandcamp site and saw this at the bottom of his new cd page with Michael Streans....."if you like this you may...."  Rarely see portraits used for ambient inspired music.  She currently plays guitar in the Iggy Pop band.

The Liebestod at the end of Tristan und Isolde is one of my very favorite pieces of music. So extraordinary and profound.
I can imagine it is even more powerful after listening to the entire opera. I just haven't got around to it yet. 4 hours (?) seems a bit much. Maybe, some day. :)

After 4 hours of the Tristan & Isolde opera you are released from the foundations of your feelings. You live, you breathe and you are this music and these characters. There are three acts with 30 minutes break between them. After the second act you forget the world around you. After the third act you want even more. Perhaps the most beautiful opera by Wagner with ravishing arias and lyrics.

I'm a big fan of good symphonic orchestration and I love strings more than anything. All the pieces here are exceptionally beautiful. Mahler was a great admirer of Wagner throughout his life. I myself am a great admirer of Wagner. He created melodies that are not of this world. And he has the most unique layers of sound that I know. His stereo image of the strings is extraordinary and you experience the sound floating up in space. I have seen three Wagner operas so far (Tannhäuser, Parsifal, and yesterday Tristan & Isolde). You have to like Wagner. But those who like it will love his music forever.
