new release: Drone Excursion 008


The newest drone excursion is now available.

Here are the notes and the download link.

Special thanks to Geoff Small for uploading this to bandcamp for me.

This, the 8th in the Drone Excursion series, was inspired partly by the Magnificent Void by Steve Roach and was originally a shorter track which appeared on a compilation on the nostress label in early 2014.

My friend Travis Butler offered to give some thoughts on the music you are about to hear and I thank him for the kind words about this drone Excursion.

"There is a space within us all that echoes our thoughts, feelings, and is a place that we can look forward to inhabiting, can fill us full of dread, or both. Good drone music lets us accomplish all of the above. If there is any guidance, it is gently done. Scott Lawlor’s long form drones are a prime example of how rewarding a slow moving trip into the somewhat strange and unexplored regions of your inner being can be. In this latest installment of the Drone Excursion series, called The Mystic Void, we are invited on a trip into the mysterious, where darkness and light dwell together, creating a feeling of beauty and mysticism. Close your eyes, put on the headphones, relax and let this truly magnificent piece take you on a trip through your mind, on a journey through the dark and into the light. You will be greatly rewarded."


As always, thank you for listening.

new release: The Ambient Appliance Series 2 spin drone


I’m happy to announce another release called Spin Drone.

Here are the notes and the link to the album.

I’d like to thank Rune Martinsen and Oystein Jorgensen of the petroglyph label for releasing the second in this more experimental series.

"In 2013, we got a new washer and dryer and so I decided to create another ambient appliance installation with the washing machine.
It started out as just being the spin cycle, thus the name of the track, "Spin drone" but as I listened back to the recording,
I decided that it needed more elements from the different cycles of the appliance to make it a little more interesting.
I recorded the sound of the washer filling with water, well as much as these environmentally friendly machines do that anyway,
as well as other noises the appliance makes in its lengthy cycle utilized to clean the laundry."


Thanks for listening.
