My inspiration was La Monte Thornton Young’s 31 VII 69 1026 – 1049 PM Munich. I found very interesting how he combined a one pitched drone noise with varying sounds of voices. This combination of drone and singing creates a very interesting, meditative, spiritual piece. The almost 23 min length adds to the element of meditation and trance. I especially liked the sections in which it transitioned from just the drone noise to including the voices; it gave the impression that the singers were speaking to the noise. This simple relationship made the piece very successful.
