David Wells - Drone Works # 9

This is the ninth in the drone works series from Twenty Hertz following releases from Colin Potter, Paul Bradley, and Andrew Liles amongst others. On droneworks # 9 Wells opts for an assortment of varied sounds and atmospheres. It's a measured approach that works surprisingly well from a gradual fade-up to metallic buzzing before dissipating into a fluttering drone that provides the main thrust of the track. There's a minor aquatic theme throughout from the sound of running water midway to the distant sounds of lapping waves on the seashore that predominate towards the end of the piece before a cold drone closes this evocative release. There's a lot of activity and varied textures in the short 23 minute duration of this drone piece. A collaboration with Paul Bradley is forthcoming. For more information go to
