Scotland's Andrew Howie releases 60-minute "I Can Sing A Rainbow"

SCOTTISH musician Andrew Howie has released "I Can Sing A Rainbow". He explained, "This 60-minute ambient piece was originally released as a free gift for anyone who bought 'The Quiet In The Land', a noisy electronic record I released under the name Calamateur in 2011. This new version has been tweaked and re-mixed at home, then lovingly re-mastered by Steve Lawson. The piece is comprised of seven musical phrases (one for each colour of the rainbow) which repeat at mathematically pre-determined points throughout the song's one-hour duration, often overlapping in unforeseen and fortuitous ways. These seven phrases play out over a background of ever-evolving noises that represent the earth's elements."
