Drone Concert No. 1 – 4 are four different 1 hour albums released at the same time, each individual yet part of a whole in their own right. Each album provides the listener with an entire sonic world and narrative, beginning with a 5 minute entrance into the minimal, nebulous realm of the pieces. The pieces are also the electronic tracks to the Drone Concerts sold on the John Franek Music Editions page.

I’m Sure You Can Imagine is a 13-minute piece for harpsichord and electronics which continuously molds and wraps around itself. “‘I’m Sure You Can Imagine’ shows once again the love of this artist for the sound of the instrument as well as the complexity of the many layers of intended repetition of patterns. It could reminds us the way of the minimal music pioneered in the sixties by great composers such as La Monte Young, Terry Riley, Steve Reich and Philip Glass.” (Alain Lefebvre) I’m Sure You Can Imagine was released on Off Records and is available on iTunes, Amazon Mp3, Spotify and more!
