A long-form remix of DW’s Abecedronium, combining 26 separate drones into an ever-shifting odyssey.
Drone Wallah is C.P. McDill’s project devoted solely to expansive drone works. This album and its predecessor were the fruits of a season of experimentation with the numerous means of creating droney sounds pleasing to the ear. It is by no means exhaustive, as there are millions of possible ways. This is just one brief period of exploration.
