The album "Lowland Islands. 1 (Greater Cumbrea)" is a sonic interpretation of the islands in the Clyde river estuary, 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.
