DRONE (Buy CDs by this artist)
Drone (UK Freek) 1996
Drone, a New Zealand trio relocated to London, envisions a world of Casios, where the most uncommon sounds can create a new orchestra. Drum machine clicks and distorted keyboard strokes unfold to develop fugues and passages. Even with the occasional female voice, the sound remains inhuman. Drone sounds home-composed, aware and appreciative of the panoramic possibilities of cheesy computer music.[Ben Goldberg]
