about

This collection includes the full audio tracks to Drums and Drones: Decade, a retrospective triple album and 144 page book covering the first ten years of Brian Chase's solo project, Drums and Drones. The digital download is available on its own and comes as well with a purchase of Drums and Drones: Decade. Special bonus videos are included: two documenting the method for "Melody Drum Drone, v.4" and "Edges Drum", and a live version of the "Melody Drum" series from a concert at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, NY.

"Spread across the three CDs are luscious laboratory experiments in listening to stretched skins, wooden vessels and metallic surfaces. . . Continually, he is immersed in his methods, gauging subtle inflections in frequency, density and transmission. The accompanying hardback book contains a wealth of procedural information[,] personal thoughts and video stills, making Drums & Drones an indispensable statement on how drummers hear sound." - Phillip Brophy, The Wire

The three albums which comprise the audio works of Drums and Drones: Decade are each available individually on Bandcamp.
