The rain that day did not stop but that didn't deter us from exploring the village. We wandered around the cobbled streets and spent some time in the Palace's Gardens, which were kindly opened by the National Trust for Scotland, the custodians of said Palace.
Afterwards, rather than heading back (we had visited the Palace before) we explored further and ended up in these wonderfully eerie and deathly quiet back lanes: lanes with cobbles that we treacherously slick with rain and green with various forms of intentional and unintentional flora ... lanes where no car could go ... lanes where you felt in another time and place, out of step and just passing through;
It is a wonderful memory that came to me almost immediately when I played the latest Dronescape from Cousin Silas ... a piece that reminds of the peace and quiet of these lanes, so much so that it informed the artwork for the release.
Dronescape 045 is a wonderfully gentle piece: vivid and yet relaxing; it is the perfect soundscape for these anxious times that we are living in ... music to relax with ... music to be enjoyed with headphones and minimal distractions ... the perfect accompaniment for "me time" whether your 71 minutes involves of a sound-bath or a bubble-bath ... or wandering with your camera in the back lanes of a historic village.
Take time out to listen to Cousin Silas' latest Dronescape, I doubt you will regret it. I certainly haven't.
weareallghosts is funded through the money we receive for albums and dronescapes such as this. For us to realistically continue to put out this level of quality in the quantity that we do, we need to levy a small charge for some of our releases. Please help out by buying the dronescape.
That said, if you aren’t able to then please note a 320kbps version of this release will be available in the next couple of days over on Archive (archive.org/details/we-are-all-ghosts) for free.
