House Music with Steve Pretty


Episode 6 - Drone Drama

Season 1, Ep. 11

Musician and composer Steve Pretty takes you on a musical tour of your own house and your innately musical brain.


Steve explores what happens to melody when you add a single, held note - a drone. He demonstrates the role of drones in Indian classical music with master violinist Jyotsna Srikanth, looks into why drones are so ubiquitous in film and TV (whilst pitching his own drones to TV producers), and searches for some tasty drone sounds in his household appliances.

Great fun for locked down families, friends or singles - or anyone curious to learn more about music. He can’t promise to turn you into a concert flautist, but this podcast will transform the way you hear and appreciate music.
