Profile of Stockholm’s Experimental Drone Scene

For the last several years, a series of low drones have been echoing out from Stockholm, Sweden, and captivating experimental music fans from around the world. Artists like Kali Malone, Ellen Arkbro, Caterina Barbieri, and Maria W. Horn are releasing some of the most compelling drone and electro-acoustic music around, all from the Swedish capital. The emergence of these artists isn’t coincidental. That a relatively small country can be home to so many successful experimental musicians has much to do with decades of state-funded institutions and the bonds between old avant-garde legends and the scene’s fresh faces.
