about

E.T. Drone Home was made through a few series of events over a roughly 2 year period. The story is as follows:

I had played drums with the band Queen Elephantine around 2012 when it was a 3-peice with leader Indy Shome and bassist Brett Zweimann. A few years later Indy asked me to build some drones for band's upcoming record Kala (2016). These were to be used as background drones, the way Indian Classical music uses the tanpura. I recorded several varying drones and sent a few to Indy in the hopes that he would be satisfied, then I closed the session.

Then, in the summer of 2015, I was in Beirut visiting my family when I got an email from my friend Dave saying he was coming to play a gig. What timing! When he arrived I went to see him in the hotel and we talked for a while. I had my laptop with me and began to show him some of my recent work. I opened the session for Kala and played him some of the drone tracks. He then took the laptop and un-muted all the tracks and let them play together at once. He then declared, "This sounds great! Put some drums on it and call it a record!" I took it deeply to heart, though not word for word. I returned to New York and spent morning hours in my studio space tracking drums, vocals, guitars... I spent the winter of 2015 through spring of 2016 editing, mixing, and overdubbing a bit too. When it was ready I took the work to Heba Kadry who mastered the record.
