Drone Archeology, produced by Numerical Sound, contains 99 stereo drones, ranging from 32 to 64 seconds in length. The drones are all steady in pitch, but have constant movement, thus they are never the same from one moment to the next. In order to aid multimedia and film production, the drones have been classified into seven categories as follows: Nature, Science, Drama, Industry, Voice, Bell and Drones.
Each drone is contemporary and original in nature, offering the film composer and musician an invaluable resource for creating soundtracks, sound beds, and sound design. Used as foundation material, the drones in Drone Archeology can be processed and transformed in any number of ways to assist the user in the development of their own unique sound.
Drone Archeology is the first audio CD to include a listing of the original stereo loop points. This provides the user CD ROM-features in an audio CD platform. The 114-page user manual included with every CD contains a new harmonic classification system, insight into the structure of these complex tones, and other useful technical information.
