Drone Capsule

January 19, 2012

 

On the Space Capsule this week … drones … not remote controlled military flying vehicles … musical drones

“In music, a drone is a harmonic or monophonic effect or accompaniment where a note or chord is continuously sounded throughout most or all of a piece.”

 

We mix an innovative and thought-provoking set this week, which includes artists that work with drones … blending and bending them into unique compositions.  Several artists on the show this week have albums available as free downloads. (We will post a follow up blog post with links.)

So tune into the drones of the Space Capsule this Friday at 11pm CST on 91.3 FM or kvlu.org!

Remember, the Space Capsule re-broadcast on Sunday evenings at 8pm CST and previous programs are posted for streaming at http://www.mixcloud.com/SpaceCapsule/
