Elizabeth Veldon’s Winter Drones

Emanations from Glasgow

Elizabeth Veldon, a Glasgow-based musician, has been posting a series of winter-themed drones with titles like “glengoyne surrenders to winter and all the valleys fill with snow” and “a winter song for faze (sleep, sleep/ snow had fallen)” and “the lower levels of angels, even, are bathed in grace (for lilly).” They sound true to their titles: warm, long, hovering explorations of spaciousness and timelessness. They are luxurious things intended for immersive listening. The “glengoyne” one is 50 minutes in length, the others 30 minutes and 20 minutes respectively.
