Accordion Noir 2021-10-20: The Return of the Living Drone (Pre-Fund Drive Special)

October 21, 2021
AccNoir 2021-10-20
Drone Piece In Memory of ______ (2020), an 18-minute bonus track

Almost a year after our nearly-four-hour episode The Night The Drone Stood Still, in conjunction with our neighbours at the Soundscape program, Bruce decided it was time to revisit that well, whose level had hardly gone down after having a mere 240 minutes skimmed off of it. Tonight’s sequel features a further three hours from the drone file tonight. (Will this become an annual tradition? In one fell swoop, it makes drone one twentieth of our annual output!) For those of you who enjoy long, contemplative, meditative listening sessions… this episode is for you! Find a comfortable chair to listen to it in, and maybe be sure to take a break every 90 minutes to keep the blood circulation going in your legs! If your Apple or Android podcast subscriptions (strongly recommended!) haven’t alerted you to the episode’s availability yet, you can enjoy listening to it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:
