Drone from a Drone

Drone from a Drone


Whenever I flew my Drone I heard its pitch and later found it to be middle C (C3) – cue sample!

To keep the drone stable in flight the four rotors are turning at slightly different speeds giving you this detuning effect, particularly later in the sample as I turn the drone.

I recorded it with a Zoom H2N and it also picked up a passing car later in the sample which you will hear on the high notes. It turned out to be a surprisingly playable instrument once you tame the fizz.

I collaborated with fellow Pianobook member, Darren J Prescott, to produce a YouTube trailer with tongues firmly implanted in cheek!

Hope you enjoy my Drone from a Drone and the Photosynthesis Engine where experimentation is the key!
