Drone music on the radio

Drone music is a minimalist and experimental music genre that emphasizes the use of sustained or repeated sounds and tones to create a meditative and hypnotic effect. The genre is often associated with ambient and avant-garde music and is characterized by its slow tempo, extensive use of electronic and acoustic instruments, and its focus on texture and atmosphere rather than melody and rhythm.

Some of the most popular drone music artists include Sunn O))), a Seattle-based group known for their extremely heavy and atmospheric soundscapes, Earth, an American band that pioneered the use of distorted, detuned guitars in drone music, and Tim Hecker, a Canadian composer known for his dark and haunting soundscapes.

There are several radio stations that focus on drone music, including Drone Zone on the internet radio station SomaFM, which plays a variety of ambient and drone music, and Drone Zone Radio, which streams a mix of drone, ambient, and experimental music from around the world. Other notable radio stations include Ambient Sleeping Pill, an internet radio station that plays a mix of ambient, drone, and experimental music designed to help listeners relax and fall asleep, and Stillstream Radio, which broadcasts a mix of ambient, drone, and experimental music 24/7.
