February 16th, 2012. Droneware is a beautiful bubbly longform track that seamlessly ties elements of ambient forms and electronic synthesizers together. At just over an hour, Droneware will certainly please those who enjoy a full immersion into the sound.
Listeners will find a world of sounds brewing together in this release. Rhythmic percussion and perky synths glide in and around the sound field, as light melodies from bells and marimbas cascade around your eardrums. Synthesizer melodies, harmonies, and effects ascend and plateau atop this silky foundation which makes a lovely transcendent mix of sounds on this track.
Droneware has a bit of a new age influence in the album, however the ambient and drone content are definitely the dominant forces in the music. The light atmospheric haze that surrounds the album is the subtle magic that draws you in, while the rhythms and melodies give your mind's eye a colorful journey. This is a great album for about any activity but particularly for occasions that call for relaxing. Droneware is chillaxing. Drone Age, Drone, and light Ambient fans will want to take note of this fine release.
