My good friend Brian Lavelle is to release a recent project of mine called 'After Wednesday' on his excellent dust-unsettled label. Brian writes:
"This new release from Andrew Paine will surprise those who've heard his other releases - either as a solo artist, or recording together with Richard Youngs, Alistair Crosbie and others.
'After Wednesday' is a single composition, a contemplative, yet haunting, soundscape, composed only from several layers of minimalistic piano and subtle, processed field recordings. Recorded in Glasgow and on Holy Isle, it represents a turning point, a looking-outwards-and-onwards, and not just in musical terms. A very personal release, stunning in its simplicity."
Running time: 26:49
