Winter-Light welcomes Hessel Veldman musician, composer and producer to our label with his new album 'Ymuiden'. The album comprises of seven experimental electronic soundscapes, laced with industrial elements, creating a hypnotic, dark undercurrent of sound.

'Ymuiden' is an experimental audio sound map of Ijmuiden, Noord-Holland, The Netherlands. A city where Hessel grew-up and still lives today. A place that has seen much happen, many changes and innovation in its short history, as Hessel outlines below .....

Ymuiden - Hessel Veldman:(Shadows of IJmuiden’s Roughness)
Ymuiden…
IJmuiden…
my place of birth…
the place where I spent my youth…
the place where I still live…
IJmuiden…
the place that was born in 1876…
where they dug and conquered the dunes…
where they gave birth to the mouth (muiden) of the harbour (Piervrees) of Amsterdam (IJ)…
the place of raw (Rauw) labour…
the off-shore industry (Stuurlast)…
the steel factory (Ademslak)…
the gateway (docks; Sluisgelag) to Amsterdam…
the exit to the world (Scheepskoorts)…
the international fishing harbour (Tongrot)…
the fortified WWII (1943-1945) city (Duinbeton)…
