The Science of Rainbows – New YouTube Video

Today I released the video for my instrumental track The Science of Rainbows, created by the amazing team at Art Studio 14.

I guess I’m known as a singer songwriter type performer at the moment but I come up with many different ideas for my music. I first came up with the concept for this track many, many years ago. I wanted to do an instrumental track with dialogue on it. It was my attempt to try and represent the mix of science and natural beauty involved in a rainbow.

Originally I just sampled some old Open University type lecture on the subject, but worried that it might offend someone if I just stole their content. So the track sat on my hard drive for years but I never forgot about it.

Years later I had the good fortune to become great friends with a woman who had a very keen interest in the world of science. After talking about the idea of the song she very kindly agreed to not only write a custom dialogue about the science of rainbows, but to also narrate it for me. So this track really wouldn’t have happened without her.

Once I’d heard her amazing content I felt compelled to return to the track and make it better so that it could hopefully act as a worthy backing for her beautiful words.

Yes this is a little bit of departure from what some of you might have expected from a Rise Bailey Rise track, but I hope you enjoy it regardless.

So I dedicate this song to Jan Kiddley and her science.

And don’t forget…

“There are many rays of light”

Thanks for your time

FAWM Update

So today brings the end of my February album writing month challenge (FAWM). I didn’t quite get to 14 songs, but I did get a lot more done than I thought possible and I really enjoyed working on the songs. So here’s what I did get done:

1) Your Code Name is Jonah: Main vocal melody, chords and arrangement, pre-chorus and chorus lyrics written, bunch of verse ideas which need tidying up.

2) The Capital club: Concept/plot, main chords, vocal melody and chorus lyrics written.

3) Empathy Drains: All done, demo recorded just needs tidying up.

4) Unexploded: Arrangement, verses and bridge lyrics written (I already had rest of song)

5) We Breathe: Finished just needs recording (I already had chords and main hook)

6) The Clock Changer: Concept/plot, chords and general style/arrangement done, some lyrics.

7) Feel The Burn: Finished just needs recording, was originally going to be a guitar tune put may change to piano for recording.

8) The Girl Who Named Pluto: Main vocal melody, chords and arrangement, chorus and outro lyrics written, bunch of verse ideas which need tidying up.

9) Right Hand Man: Main vocal melody, chords and arrangement, chorus and some verse lyrics.

10) Flight 305 (The Tale of DB Cooper): Finished just needs recording.

I’ll share the demo of “Empathy Drains” in the next couple of days then will post the others as I record them.

FAWM 2017

FAWM is February Album Writing Month! Every year I think about doing this, so finally I’ve signed up to try and write 14 songs in the 28 days of February. You can keep track of my progress here:

Rise Bailey Rise – FAWM 2017

I keep an Evernote document on my phone of new song title ideas which I add to all the time so I’ve picked a selection of these to work on. I’ll also use it as an opportunity to work on a few ideas which I have had for a while bouncing round my head. It will be a mix of full lyrical songs and instrumentals and I’ll hopefully get some of my musical buddies involved too along the way.

Cheers
