New single "Pines" out now
Pines stems from the notion of evolution of plant life all over earth; a growth that cultivates a home for wildlife and creates the oxygen we need to breathe. There is an element of uncertainty in the track, which reflects and questions the way we interact with the planet and our respect for the plants that keep us alive. The continuous movement within the track reminds us that all organisms and plants are ever growing and evolving, whilst reflecting the endless nature of the energy driving this life cycle.
It is a soaring melodic track that begins at the top of the frequency spectrum, gaining breadth and colour as it descends. By the time the lowest notes are reached, an ascending melody takes flight, taking the low frequencies with it as it soars from the cello. Pines ebbs and flows like a towering tree swaying in the forest, as the melody lucidly glides above. A sense of tranquillity in the middle section provides a bed for pizzicato patterns to resonate before the melody takes flight again.
'Harmonic' at Kew Gardens
Rob Lewis will be performing a selection of compositions from his forthcoming album as part of Cirque Bijou's show 'Harmonic', live at Kew Gardens' Temperate House throughout the summer. Rob's music for looping cello will provide a live soundtrack to aerial acrobat Korri Aulakh's mesmerising performance. For more details see the live page.
