Each of Drone Archaeology's constantly evolving drones are based on original sounds and acoustic palettes and have completely unique characteristics. These tones are the result of computer resynthesis with a series of proprietary computer programs. Each drone is rich yet is completely absent of noise. Contemporary and original in nature and scope, Drone Archaeology is a powerful tool in the hands of the contemporary and avant garde composer/musician, as well as being an invaluable resource for film composers creating soundtracks, soundbeds and sound design. Used as foundation material, they can be processed and transformed in any number of ways to assist you in developing your own particular sound. Drone Archaeology offers the musician and/or composer a selection of 99 completely unique tones that are steady in pitch but have constant movement so that they are never the same from one moment to the next. Every drone is between 32 and 64 seconds of original material with no built-in loops.
Drone Archaeology is the first audio CD to include a listing of the original stereo loop points. This gives the user CD-ROM features in an audio CD platform. The detailed information on how to find the loop points means that Mac and PC users can extract and loop the drones from the same CD. Details in the manual enable a maximization of the amount of audio on Drone Archaeology without the inevitable loss of space that a mixed-mode CD-ROM would have. There is also a 114-page manual included with every CD contains a new harmonic classification system, insight into the structure of these complex tones, and other useful technical information.
In order to aid multimedia and film production people the drones have been classified into 7 categories. These are Nature, Science, Drama, Industry, Voice, Bell, and Drones. The drones were designed to have "focused spectrums." In other words to occupy a measured amount of the sonic space in the stereo field. Even though they are extremely rich and evocative tones, they do not dominate or overpower the overall sound by leaving little room for any other sounds to co-exist. Using any of these drones in dense sonic passages will not obscure the rest of sonic detail present.
