The list author says: "Drone music is typically made up of sustained notes and tone clusters that give a sense of timelessness and transcendence. People who enjoy drone music like it because it is relaxing, soothing, otherworldly, or because it can be used to block out annoying environmental sounds. Drone music shifts very slowly and some people find it useful as background for creative activity. Good drone music should not change so much that it becomes overly dynamic. Neither should it be so static that a tape loop would give you the same effect. I use drone music to relax, nap, and daydream. Here are some of my favorites."
"The masterpiece of the genre. If you get the entire set of these you will have four hours of some of Steve Roach's best music. This is space music at its best. Imagine falling slowly through space and you will get an idea of what this sounds like."
