Few albums have treated human voice and drone as a whole entity like ABoneCroneDrone, the third in a trilogy for Real World Records that this record closed back in 1996. In Sheila Chandra's own words: "it was about the gateways between vocal techniques from different cultures and how it was possible to cross between them within a single word or phrase." With the help of bagpipes, didgeridoos and guitars, ABoneCroneDrone puts drones under the microscope and encourages listeners to retrain their ears to hear the nuances that musicians have always heard in them. Emitting low, chant-like waves, Chandra sings deep spaced atonal words while haunting chord sounds flow and drones slowly interact with listener. First vinyl pressing includes a fold-out insert with a new Sheila Chandra interview, original sleeve notes edited by Chandra herself and unseen pictures taken from the 1996 sessions; Edition of 500.
