Something a little different.
The first in a series of collections of shorter ambient drones.

A listener messaged me a while ago asking if I ever did shorter, self-contained drones of, say, 10 minutes or so in length. I had to say that I didn't but I found the request intriguing and set myself the challenge of making it a reality.

This was an interesting and fun album to produce. I hope you enjoy it too.

As I write this, there is already a second volume of shorter ambient drones ready to release so I think it is likely that I may release these collections occasionally alongside the longer ambient drones.

Reviews of Songs of The Desert

At over 24 hours in length, "Songs of the Desert" is more than an album, it's a musical experience to enjoy the whole day long.

The never-ending, constantly evolving drone oscillations become a part of you just as air, light, darkness and other elements become a part of your overall ambience.

Bill Baxter provides an engaging and immersive 24 hours of pure atmospheric sound. Listen and become one with the music. Perhaps you are what you hear ...?

Reviews of Old Photographs of Clouds

When I think and hear of the theme of this album, I am reminded of the old landscape photographs of the American west of the late 1940s early 1950s... Such landscapes (with this dronescape) causes me to drift off and wonder... Momentary Solitudes...Enjoy!
