5.0 out of 5 stars An ambassadorial odyssey September 6, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Dating from 1995, "A Storm of Drones" is the final episode of the Drones Trilogy, compiled by Naut Humon for the Sombient division of Asphodel Records. In fact, this particular release is itself a trilogy, providing within a single (Opak) box three well-packed (if not terribly well-packaged) CDs, each offering a slightly different take on music that is without any discernible tune, rhythm or beat and totalling in all some 220 minutes of intense musical listening - which, I hope, explains the title.
The three-CD format of "A Storm of Drones" permits a somewhat broader - and deeper - exploration of 'music of the drone' than that undertaken in either of this volume's precursors. This is noticeable from the outset, with the first CD in the set - bearing the subtitle of "Audio" - consisting of some eleven extracts of works previously released in the electroacoustic and acousmatic catalogue of the Canadian recording company DIFFUSION i MéDIA (better known nowadays as electrocd.com, a company that has subsequently released the full versions of some of the works featured on the second CD in this set, by the way.)
The length of the excerpts presented here varies greatly: from a couple of two-minute movements lifted from Francis Dhomont's "...mourir un peu" to major (i.e. 13+ minutes) chunks of works such as Robert Normandeau's "Tangram" and Stéphane Roy's "Crystal Music". The extract from the latter, in fact, consists of almost the entire 14 minutes of the original, although inexplicably missing the opening five seconds-worth and with the final two minutes presented in a different form.

5.0 out of 5 stars Insanely Intense -- Benchmark Your Speakers! October 26, 1999
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wow! This set is INCREDIBLY cool. The first CD in particular will do things to your speakers and your head that you did not think possible. If you want to benchmark your speakers or a compression codec, I'd highly recommend this CD. If you want to undergo a surreal voyage into sound, I'd also highly recommend this CD. If you only want shiny plastic disks that play Beck or Beethoven, don't get this disk. IT IS WEIRD, but only in the very best sort of way. =)

5.0 out of 5 stars Be transported to another time and place August 23, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This compilation manages to transport the listener to another world through the use of a variety of sound sculptures, atmospherics, and lush synthesizers. The ambience induces relaxation through the creation of organic soundworlds. A must have for any fan of ambient minimalism or anyone else who just wants to relax, ahhhh.
