Beta-Lactam Ring Records has announced a new 7LP series involving myself and various musical projects I am/have been involved with entitled Drone Compendium.

Drone Compendium

Beginning the end of May 2011 and over the course of the year, the first 6 LPs of the series will be available individually and the 7th will be exclusively available to subscribers to the entire series.

The series includes the following:

Two tracks of, well, pure drone…minimal ambient guitar
