Drone music's slow moving ambience and long repetitive tones position it as a soothing genre, suitable for relaxation, meditation, and therapeutic practices.

Drone Therapy is a comedy performance series about mental health and treatment access. It began as a Youtube series in 2015 while I was struggling in a free three month Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) program, and has continued as Drone Therapy Live, which takes Drone Therapy out of my bedroom to venues, galleries, or festivals, sometimes with guests. In December 2017 Drone Therapy Podcast launched as a regular audio series focusing on Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT) via Vice Motherboard.
