Quiet Drones 3

by Various Artists



Quiet Drones 3 is the latest and greatest (in our humble opinion) compilation of pure ambient bliss!

Compiled by Heiki Sillaste who has collected exclusive beatless tracks from KINDER ATOM, CHROMOSPHERE, HEIKI, NAW and London Ontario's NOISE LEVEL.

CHROMOSPHERE open the compilation with a reworked track taken from the Spectral Omissions CD/DL (paplus13), released earlier this year on paper+sound. Drum tracks have been stripped out and sounds have been reprocessed to create a introspective Fundamental State.

NOISE LEVEL is a London, Ontario ethno-ambient, electronic sound project designed to evoke the world of film soundtracks. The Zen Room (ChanFang) is a delicate piece of processed piano and bell sounds and is exclusive to Quiet Drones 3.

CHROMOSPHERE vs. HEIKI is an ongoing ambient battle between the forces of silence and noise. Moog synthesizers buzz while beat up effects peddles create resonant feedback hum.

HEIKI contributes a redone version of his ominous Government Island track. The original appears on his recently issued Sauna Porch Recordings Co. CD/DL (paplus11). Recorded live at Toronto's long running Ambient Ping nights.Toronto's

KINDER ATOM contribute their first brand new music in several years. Naked Mask / Masque Nue is taken from the band's upcoming e.p. for the label. Minimal pulsing arpeggios of a relentless thud, overlayed with fragments of voices. What's behind the Naked Mask?

NAW provides a long exclusive piece for QUIET DRONES 3. His contribution, 13 Stories High, is a slight, barely evolving drone, where bell like sounds are dubbed out to infinity.

The album also includes a bonus seamless 55 minute super ambient mix by Heiki, which further processes and meshes all of the pieces into a continuous wall of drone.
