For one reason or another, I found myself at the age of 41 and having never left the british mainland when i and my partner decided to visit the islands in the firth of clyde. this series of three albums document these experiences.

In the case of Arran it is a fantasy as we will not have an opportunity to visit that island until the spring due to the difficulties of traveling there.

The album “Lowland Islands. 1 (Greater Cumbrea)” is a sonic interpretation of the islands in the Clyde river firth, Scotland. Building on a prolific back-catalogue, elizabeth Veldon utilises structured harmonics, minimalist drones and alternating scales to represent Kilchatten Bay & Fintray Bay on the west coast of Scotland.

These drones express an isolation from the mainland, a barrenness and also the fragility of being a passing soul through a timeless landscape. There is a bleak sense of otherwordliness when you listen to these drones – almost alienation.

At ease with her equipment, she deftly employed the use of physical, analogue technologies and software instruments to build this minimalist composition in to a timeless reminder that we are but fleeting effigies.

elizabeth Veldon is a sound artist working primarily in the areas of long form drone, minimalism and improvisation.

This is the first album in a three-part series that explores the artist’s relationship with isolated areas – figuratively and literally.

Released on 1st November 2016. This album will be on the bigger download sites by the 30th November 2016.
