Editorial Reviews

"I started writing the Drones pieces as a method of developing harmonic ideas over a static structure. The idea is something not unlike singing along with one's vacuum cleaner, or with the subtle but constant humming found in most dwelling places. We surr

Format: Audio CD
Nico Muhly is one of the shining stars of our time, and as a student of composition I like to keep my ear to the ground when someone fresh and exciting like Muhly produces new works.

Originally produced in several installments, Drones are a series of pieces that explore music written around and utilizing the drone. He writes for drones to be played in the piano, viola and violin, and each piece explores the various ways the musical roles can be explored.

Drones is a fascinating exploration of the juxtaposition of static musical formations and active ones, and Muhly does so with interesting and colorful results.

Some tracks are more contemplative and melodious like Part I Material in D which brings to mind the works of Arvo Paart, while some are extremely active such as Part V. All the tracks explore Muhly's penchant for short melodies and beautiful if not mysterious harmonies.

While you won't be entirely satisfied if your conception of drones is something you might listen to as you fall asleep or practice yoga, Muhly's album is a smart, refreshing and insightful compositional exploration of drones as a musical device.

What you'll find on Drones is an exhilarating work with masterful performances that express and explore a panoply of emotions and moods, while cultivating an ingenious musical conversation in a chamber setting.

I am a dedicated fan of Muhly's from the moment I heard him at WDH in LA. He is an articulate composer, mindful, as a writer he leaves no loose ends on top of excellence in intelligent use of textures and color in his work. But this album did get on my nerves after a few pieces, not something you want to listen to in rush-hour traffic...
