Created for The Vault (May - July 2014), Drone For Chris (drone not drones) was created with multi-tracked guitars, a long-form sound is punctuated by quieter actions, resulting in a mixture of timbres. The result is disorientation as the listener strains to hear what the quieter sounds are, despite being able to hear their interactions with the louder sound, through harmonic frequencies and other auditory phenomena.
