Volume one in the ongoing Quiet Drones compilation series of
electronic, ambient and experimental drone music, featuring: Atonement, Chromosphere, Heiki, Kinder Atom, Lazer Caps and Rapoon.
paper+sound is very proud to reissue the first volume of the Quiet Drones ambient compilation series. Newly remastered from the source recordings, the original edition of Quiet Drones 1 appeared back in 2007, on the Toronto based nice+smooth ultramedia label.
Half of the tracks on QD1 were mined from the extensive nice+smooth ultramedia back-catalogue, while the others are exclusive to this release.
2019 will see the release of Quiet Drones 10 (!!!) on paper+sound. Label head and Quiet Drones curator Heiki Sillaste wanted to revisit the first volume and have it made available again, twelve years later, on his own label.
Toronto’s paper+sound label has been operating since 2009, releasing a wide range of electronic-based music in it’s ten year existence. This is the 62nd release for the label, having put music out on cassette, vinyl albums, vinyl 7″, compact discs and digital only downloads.
The Quiet Drones compilation series has long been a favourite of the label, showcasing mostly exclusive and unreleased ambient drone music – largely from Toronto and the surrounding regions. Past contributors have included paper+sound affiliated artists such as HEIKI, CHROMOSPHERE, DIRTY INPUTS, dreamSTATE, naw, PROCESSOR, ATONEMENT and DE HAGA plus selected deep drones from KALTE, NORTHUMBRIA, DISPLACER, URM, SEVA, MICHAEL HOLCER, JAKOB THIESEN, CELL MEMORY, CINEMASCOPE, PULSEWIDTH, BUILDING CASTLES OUT OF MATCHSTICKS, J.M. LADD, INCHOATE, NO COLOUR BLUE, THE FREQUENCY PROJECT and more.
