Camille – Le Fil (2005)
Le Fil is the second album by French singer Camille. The title translates as “The Thread” and from the outset to the very end* (see below) the album features a continuous ‘tone’ – a low-level drone – that is in the background of every song and between tracks. Camille describe the ‘b’ note used as ‘her note’.
On its release in 2005 many people returned the record/CD in the belief that the sound was a fault in the recording. On the CD version, the ‘drone’ continues for a full 9 minutes after the end of the final track.
