DRONES

Drones
Drone music is a minimalist musical style that emphasizes the use of sustained or repeated sounds, notes, or tone-clusters – called drones. It is typically characterized by lengthy audio programs with relatively slight harmonic variations throughout each piece compared to other musics. La Monte Young, one of its 1960s originators, defined it in 2000 as „the sustained tone branch of minimalism“. Drone music is also known as drone-based music, drone ambien or ambient drone, dronescape or the modern alias dronology, and often simply as drone.
Space music typically evokes a sense of spatial imagery and emotion or sensations of floating, cruising, flying and other transportative sensations. (Wikipedia)
