When I was absorbing the drone as a teenager, it was from things like Tangerine Dream and Popol Vuh and Krautrock stuff, and then later on, discovering industrial music and power electronics, bands like Throbbing Gristle and the use of pure noise. Well, more pure texture. For me, when you say drone, I think of something that has a note to it, but drone can also be pure texture, white noise. I use a lot of that too. From a very early age, I’ve liked the idea of music being reduced to pure texture. I still say Tangerine Dream’s Zeit is my favourite album of all time. To this day, I listen to that record at least once a month. It has no melody, no rhythm, it has very little in the way of harmony. It’s pure texture and sound and it takes me to a place that no other music takes me.
