Presenting ... "drone.excursion.001 (waag_dex001)" aka 'the choral drone' by Scott Lawlor

I have a lot of love for Scott Lawlor's music and was delighted to be approached by him to release his 'drone.excursion' series of longform drones.

Inspired by the work of Cousin Silas, Lawlor is going on his own journey into post-sixty minute soundscapes ... and I am proud to support him in this endeavour.

drone.excursion.001 (waag_dex001) aka 'the choral drone' is an intense vocal-orientated piece that reminds me of Gy├Ârgy Ligeti's "Atmospheres", a piece that is famous for being featured in Kubrick's '2001: A Space Odyssey'.

On the Wikipedia page for "Atmospheres", reference is made to a comment Harold Kaufman made about the piece:
"Music collapses foreground and background elements of musical structure into a 'magma of evolving sound'"
I believe this to be also true of the work Lawlor has achieved with drone.excursion.001 (waag_dex001) ... is a rich, intense piece that envelopes the listener with a sense of timelessness and rewards with repeated listens.

I really do hope you will enjoy this piece as much as I have.

An MP3 version of this piece is available for free on Archive or a lossless version available on Bandcamp for 'pay what you want' which does include £0 ... and remember, paying supporters on Bandcamp also get unlimited mobile access to the album using the free Bandcamp listening app.

If you do decide to download this piece for free then all we ask in return is that you tell your friends, tweet a link or post it on Facebook, write a review and spread the word.
