Playing with a drone allows us to tune in relation to an ongoing reference pitch, and adds a harmonic element that can shift the way we listen. As we begin to hear the pitches of a melody in relationship with the sustained foundation tone, our sense of the qualities of the different intervals deepens. This shift of awareness will enrich all our musical collaborations.
