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

Rich
