Poetry and voice by Ellom.
Music, production and images by Peter James.
Peter James is an ambient musician, sound engineer/producer and sound designer, currently based in Cumbria, in the U.K. He is also a full-time member of the global musical collective 48cameras, whose main base is in Belgium.
Ellom is a poet, writer and illustrator originally from Tartu, Estonia. Sometimes she creates recordings of her poems, on some occasions collaborating with musician friends.
Those two have been aware of each other's work for several years now, and that awareness has grown into appreciation, friendship and collaboration.
"Yes" begins with the end of the mythical era and then tries to deal with the life in the world that "they sailed away" from. And in the end finding not a cure, but something to hold on to, a mantra perhaps, or a way of existing that has hope and light in it.
Those who choose to download this EP will receive a gift of five digital images - photos taken by Peter James at Mersehead nature reserve. Those images have been deeply inspiring for Ellom at the time of the writing of the poems used here. It may be said they share something of the mood of this EP, on a level perhaps not so obvious and clear. But first of all these are powerful images in themselves and come from a place of their own, as well as from a place of unique natural beauty and power.
The photos will be added to your download.
