Drone Hill

Richard Harrison

1999
Hot Air

Richard Harrison’s solo debut, coming off of two decades playing drums, percussion or bass with everyone from Distortion Dance to Spaceheads to Stereolab, went in another direction yet: field recordings, recorded at a location on his brother’s farm where electrified wires exposed to the elements resonated with different tones depending on weather and wind. It’s a lovely collection of found sound, the rough, by-default choppy and muffled snippets becoming a series of miniature drone experiences, very much on the moodier, haunting side of ambient as such.
