Be One Limited Vinyl LP + Download

· ‘One’ by Be is the first album released by Caught By The River’s record label Rivertones.
· This four-track album imagines the sound of British
summertime as heard by one of the most important members of the animal kingdom - the bee. A hypnotic picture of the life, work and living environment of the bee, ‘One’ is a truly transcendental record - think Spacemen 3 recording a series of 21st Century outdoor ragas for Touch Records and you’re somewhere in the right direction.
· ‘One’ is the soundtrack to artist Wolfgang Butress multiple award-winning UK Pavilion at the 2015 Milan Expo, an installation that highlighted the plight of the honeybee, focusing on the importance of pollination. The music on the record is a constantly changing and evolving symphony - the sound of a dialogue between bee and human.
· The album was recorded by musicians Kev Bales and Tony Foster, a duo known for working with Spiritualized, Julian Cope, Dave Gahan and Mark Lanegan (among many others). Other musicians featured on the record include Jason Pierce, Youth,
cellist Deidre Bencsik, vocalist Camille Buttress and Amiina (the string section regularly used by Sigur Ros).
· The recording sessions saw musicians improvising in the key of D along to a live audio feed of beehive sounds. Piano, Mellotron and lap steel were overdubbed later. The result is a unique piece of truly meditative music.
· The LP format includes a digital download code.
