Yoshi Wada – Earth Horns With Electronic Drone

Earth Horns With Electronic Drone is an album by Yoshi Wada recorded in 1974 but released in 2009 on the labels EM Records and Edition Omega Print.

This release as the title entails is a drone album, drone is a subgenre of ambient. To create this drone they used mostly “earth horns” but also used some electronic equipment. The horns are ENORMOUS, some are 10 feet long and some are a massive 20 feet long. The horns drone on with not much progression to create an awesome and constant ambiance. You can also hear some small sounds in the background, things moving, doors opening and closing, stuff that was possibly unintentional but I feel add to the release. This is an awesome drone album and these people sure do have some lungs, the whole album is 77 minutes.

Not released as a digital download so if you like buy it.
