Be sure you are in the right relaxed and undisturbed mood before you start listening to these albums by Ian Vine, Orphax and Ellis Cage, because they present some of the dronest of drone music.
Orphax (Sietse van Erve) combines two different live performances of his ‘Circles’ into one dronescape *** Quest (Frans de Waard) prepares us for the coming season with Winter’s Sun.
Frans de Waard’s “Hot August Night” is the answer to anyone that thinks that ambient music ‘needs more cowbell’.
Also three releases on Moving Furniture records that explore the deepest of drones: Zeno van den Broek, Kassel Jaeger and Orphax (remixes).
Drones to soothe your restless soul: Bass Communion, Orphax and Carl Michael von Hauswolff
Two duo’s reflecting on each others work: Orphax / Machinefabriek and Stijn Hüwels / Danny Clay.
And some ‘smoke columns’ by Federico Mosconi as an encore!
“Sound is nothing other than the percussion of air.”
A collection of drone releases from Ariel Guzik, Cut Worms, Orphax and Cinema Perdu
Perfect Winter Music……
With a small warning:
You máy need the soothing sounds from Chihei Hatakeyama, Dirk Serries and Orphax to recover from the surrealistic nightmares induced by Bas van Huizen’s ‘Kluwekracht’!
D.RHÖNE – III (EXODE)
While creating music as Monolyth & Cobalt, Mathias van Eecloo saved some of his more abstract sounds with the filename D.Rhöne: “…a project to be close to the minimalist and repetitive music, the most closely to a drone state..
In 2012 and 2013 he self-released the first two albums under that same name, and now the third (and last) chapter is available as a free download. (There is also a very limited cd-release but that will probably be sold out by the time you’re reading this).
STEVE ROACH + KELLY DAVID – THE LONG NIGHT
With his impressive back-catalogue spanning over 30 years, Steve Roach may very well be counted as one of the Grandfathers of classic ambient music.
He has always remained true to his personal style: his deep soundscapes has become an example for many other artists.
