La Monte Young and Marian Zazeela’s the Theatre of Eternal Music in their minimalistic drone composition “Dream House 78’17””. Made back in 1974, it was for its time extremely long and extremely avant-garde. It was also, however, one of the very first examples of drone music. Since it wasn’t yet uploaded in its entirety on YouTube, I do that as a tribute to their fantastic work.
