Touch the pure sound of sadness, transcendence and lust:
Three new Drones out November 2004
DR-69 · OPION SOMNIUM – As they fly into darkness, only black feathers remain to wipe away our tears
OPION SOMNIUM is a one man project from Santa Fe, New Mexico, that is fascinated with birds being “divine creatures” and focusing on themes of eternity and death. The breathtaking drones of OPION SOMNIUM spread a sad, melancholic atmosphere, which is at the same time full of beauty. The compositions are based on instruments played in real time, i.e. viola, accordeon and piano, but also on floating electronics. Both tracks on this EP sound ethereal and spacy, softly feedbacking & overtunic, and are intensively emotional. Maybe this music exists in this small area beneath despair, where you can find beauty and grandeur.

VIOLET / BLUE VINYL. HAND EMBOSSED COVERS WITH METALLIC LETTERS AND PAINTED STENCIL MOTIVES ON FRONT & BACK, EACH BACKSIDE ALSO INCLUDES A SEGMENT OF A LARGER, HANDWRITTEN POEM.NUMBERED ED.
DR-70 · HUM – Ether Rider
Drone Records is proud to present HUM, another newcomer from the growing Russian experimental scene, who already released a few most promising self-made CDrs on his own label. HUM (originally a reduction from “hum-an”) defines his work as a representation of emptiness and sound, which is derived from tantric traditions. The basic intention is the “restoration of mythological time”. This release that is dedicated to “magic flight”, enlights with full vibrating “cosmic” drones on the first track ETHER RIDER, at the same time sounding like a swarm of low-pitched insects. The second piece CRUCIBLE is more loop structured & noisy, with low-fi mechanized rumblings, filled with organic substances... two fantastic sound samples that show the ability of drone sound to lead your inner mind into the center of nothingness.

BLACK VINYL. MINIMAL DESIGNED WHITE COVERS WITH B/W PHOTO
DR-71 · STABAT MORS – Ich bin so wild nach deinem Erdbeermund
STABAT MORS is the name of an amazing noise project from Germany, working on a basis of certain thematical concepts or philosophical ideas. The name of the group is derived from “Stabat Mater- Passion Music. This EP uses an autobiographic text from Klaus Kinski, the legendary “daemonic” actor, as an inspiration, “to transform his greed for life musically”. On this release, there are two pieces (named “DIE FRAU DES DIREKTORS” and “KREPIERT”) with minimal elements. Piercing, low feedback functions as main drone source being enriched with other elements, such as repeated metal feedback sounds, low analogue noise drones below, a female voice in the background citing Kinski, and an extremely distorted accordeon... All in all, what you find here is a fragmented atmosphere, not really loud, but nerve-attacking, sounding like a wild animal shortly before exploding.
