Some of these tracks
have new drones added to the sound of the bagpipes - barely perceptible
electronic hums, or gentle mechanical noises that distinctly don't belong
to the world of wood and cloth. Passages played on the chanters are looped
and turned into cycling constants; one set of drones crossfades into another;
the instrument's overtones are separated from their context, and presented
on their own. After a few tracks, the piping no longer has the connotations
of its original instrument - it's just a human and ancient sound.
