"I started writing the Drones pieces as a method of developing harmonic ideas over a static structure. The idea is something not unlike singing along with one's vacuum cleaner, or with the subtle but constant humming found in most dwelling places. We surround ourselves with constant noise, and the Drones pieces are an attempt to honor these drones and stylize them." --­Nico Muhly; Drones consists of Nico Muhly's three EPs Drones & Piano, Drones & Viola, and Drones & Violin, with a special bonus composition. Performing the pieces are Bruce Brubaker, Nadia Sirota, and Pekka Kuusisto, along with Muhly himself. Drones was recorded and produced by Valgeir Sigurðsson in the Greenhouse studios in Iceland.
