Hear music made with drones on this New Sounds program, including music by lute player Jozef van Wissem in collaboration with Jim Jarmusch and new ambient music from Brian Eno.  There's also music from a recent release simply called "Drones" by New York composer Nico Muhly.  Muhly's collection of pieces contains sets of drones, one set each featuring violin, viola & piano, and is mostly acoustic.  Then, listen to part a slow-build ambient suspension of a dance score for the company Chunky Move by Australians Oren Ambarchi and Robin Fox, revolving around guitar, electronic drones, and percussion.
