Eluvium - Virga I LPTemporary Residence Ltd
Virga I is the first album in a new ambient music series by Eluvium. Matthew Cooper, the composer behind the Eluvium moniker, explains: "I had recently been playing around with various forms of generative music and long-format looping - as well as practicing patience interacting with musical systems and recordings - hesitantly dueting with them, trying to keep things minimal while also encouraging as much depth as possible. It was really just something fun to privately experiment with for personal gain. I titled it Virga, after the drifting of rain we sometimes catch drooping on the horizon, disappearing before it reaches the ground."
