The sound of infinity

Like a ray of dark light, a drone is a primal statement of intent—shifting and beating on an endless path all its own. Created with experimental musician Alexander Hacke, this collection offers a phantasmagoria of complex, playable drones. Largely chromatic, intuitively playable, and very very long, these drones are carefully designed by Sascha Knorr and Timo Loosli—a perfect foundation for scores, atmospheres, meditation, and rituals.
