Music for Video: Shades of Drone

University of Haifa Younes & Soraya Nazarian Library (CC BY-SA)

Sometimes the sound you're looking for is a sound that sustains. Music for sitting right where you are, but going somewhere, slowly.

This Music for Video mix highlights many shades of drone and ambient electronic music from across the Free Music Archive, including some that can set a relaxing and joyful tone, and others that can be a tool for your most tense and chaotic scenes. The best drone delivers, creating a tonality upon which the rest of the piece is built, often creating a meditative space, taking on the feeling of a sculpture, and evoking intense feelings.

1. Lee Rosevere (websiteCC BY-NC) - Looking out the window of an airplane at dawn. Part of a compilation of songs intended for meditation and relaxing.

2. Zachary Cale, Mighty Moon & Ethan Schmid (websiteCC BY-NC) - The fifth in the Natch collaborative series features a team effort on "Trees Don't Sleep," which begins with two minutes of drone before the drums and melodies join in. Drone stays along for the ride.

3. Tom Carter (website, CC BY-NC-SA) - Looped guitar drones of immensely stacked beauty, with heaps of psychedelic melodic content. Fantastic.

4. Saito Koji (websiteCC BY-NC-SA) - Straight from the Fukushima native's most recent release, Koji's heavily distorted guitar grows large.

5. A. P. Vague (websiteCC BY-NC) - A calm loop slowly loses its cool, like driving through a spring rainstorm.

6. Candelgravity (website, CC BY-NC-SA) - The tragic and the beautiful twisted together.

Beyond Babylon and Drone

Kevin Schuit is a drummer based in Amsterdam. He had this idea of performing on a church collaborating with several musicians and brought together 15 of them to jam in the amazing acoustic environment of the Oude Kerk in Amsterdam. Every year students of the Rietveld Academy organize a show in Amsterdam´s Oude Kerk. Every year there is a different theme, this year´s was "Beyond Babylon". Noise Problems had to catch this and did. We also catch up with Kevin: 

How did you come up with the idea of performing in a church?

I was thinking about what kind of project I could do for this show, when I remembered a project I had previously done. It was a 6-minute drone with 8 musicians. in which I gave the musicians the instruction to play along, however they like, as long as its a minimalistic or repetitive sound and in a certain musical scale. There was a diverse range of instruments, from a drumkit to a didgeridoo to a cello. The drone turned out very nice. What I especially liked, was the fact that after a while, the sound takes over the musicians. The musicians are no longer really in control. A state of trance.

When I went to the Oude Kerk to check out the space, what struck me most was the acoustics of the church. There were extremely long reverberations which also caused for a sort of trance when I was there. So I thought a drone would be perfect in the church, this time bigger, louder, and longer. It would probably be even more entrancing in this space. But also conceptually it fit the theme of "Beyond Babylon".

Did you knew or how did you recruit the musicians to play with you?

I asked friends and fellow musicians from my bands and projects interested in experiments to join the drone. I also asked the church's organist to join. In the end 15 musicians took part. There were guitars, basses, drums, vocals, didgeridoo, tambourine, organ, violin, harmonica and more. The drone was the first performance of the show. The doors opened at 17.00 when the public walked in we were already playing. The nicest reactions of the drone I received from people who were moving through the space. They said that the sound was like a living entity, in which one could virtually and physically move around in it.

Do you have plans for a similar event in the future?

I am probably going to do the drone once more during Kerkennacht (Church-night). This is going to be in June. I am currently working on a project for the end-exam show. I am going to make a tour with my drumkit to different urban environments in and around Amsterdam and improvise with site-specific sounds. This will be filmed and recorded and eventually released on DVD.

"We work together to achieve an altered state of consciousness, to reach the unearthly, but how long will it last until we snap out of it and get splashed in the face by reality? What is the purpose of building a tower which eventually will collapse? What is the point of losing ourselves in our sound, when we know it will stop?"
