Hi – Hope you are well? All is well here.
I am chuffed to bits to say that the most productive artist I have the good pleasure of knowing, elizabeth Veldon, has a new release out on Focused Silence. Elizabeth’s “Lowland Islands 1 (Bute)” is an instantly nostalgic body of work, ætheral and pining. Fresh from her write up in The Wire magazine, elizabeth sent me “Lowland Island’s ..” a few months ago as Summer waned.
Not being the sharpest knife in the drawer, I was unaware of the date of Black Friday 2017 – the release of “Lowland Islands …” & Black Friday coincided. My bad. Still, rather than bombard you with even more “BUY ME” emails – I figure it could be a slow burner and I will send this out late.
Above, you see the artwork for the Digital Download – yes, I am following a theme. I am not going to try and wax lyrical about how the Golden Grid Method was employed for the MP3 artwork – I am, after all, telling you about the music, not the design. To hear the music and to have the opportunity to get your own copy, please head over here – you will see the relevant opportunities to get hold of the album on the right-hand side of the page.
Elizabeth is the best person to sum up this release:
“I wrote these pieces in the Autumn, intending to visit Bute in the Spring or early Summer, these are a fantasy of the island. Since then I have moved to the Highlands and not only will I not visit this island for the foreseeable future but I will never complete my proposed trilogy of works about these islands.”
“This is a fantasy that will always stay a fantasy, a dream fading slowly as a Piano note.”
That’s about all for now – thanks for reading. Grab yourself a lollipop if you made it this far … There is the usual “Unsubscribe” button in the footer
