About

"Drone of Darkness" is an original composition that was written and performed by The Continental Breakfast Club. This group is based out of San Francisco, CA, USA, and includes the following instrumentation:

voice - violin - clarinet - bandoneon - uke - guitar - string bass -drums

The word "Drone" in the song title relates to a musical drone, a harmonic or monophonic effect or accompaniment where a note or chord is continuously sounded throughout most or all of a piece. It in no way, shape or form refers to attack droids utilized by militaries.

Ironically, there is no droning that occurs in the piece. The title is in fact a reference to a line in the Pink Floyd song "San Tropez". Darkness is all encompassing, and In this way the darkness acts to the eyes as a musical drone would act to the ears.

In the contexts of the story for the song, the drone of darkness is intended to suggest the darkness of the night that can encompass and surround one and be part of the visceral and all engrossing experience of making love. In this way the darkness is actually freeing as it helps people to overcome inhibitions to do things, such as remove their clothes, which would likely not occur in the light.

Ultimately, the narrative and root metaphor of the story is that love is good, love is light, love is freeing, and the experience of having love or even looking for love is invigorating and may very well be the human initiative - even if love is fleeting.

To accomplish making the video I will hire a camera crew and 2 actors to trace the narrative of the song. The video will focus on the characters being alone on a given night and ultimately finding each other and a connection. There will be no violence, obscenity, nudity, or otherwise vulgar content in the video.
