about

“Pines” is the debut single from composer, producer and cellist, Rob Lewis. The track received its exclusive first play via Mary Anne Hobbs on BBC 6 Music.

Pines stems from the notion of evolution of plant life all over earth; a growth that cultivates a home for wildlife and creates the oxygen we need to breathe. There is an element of uncertainty in the track, which reflects and questions the way we interact with the planet and our respect for the plants that keep us alive. The continuous movement within the track reminds us that all organisms and plants are ever growing and evolving, whilst reflecting the endless nature of the energy driving this life cycle.

It is a soaring melodic track that begins at the top of the frequency spectrum, gaining breadth and colour as it descends. By the time the lowest notes are reached, an ascending melody takes flight, taking the low frequencies with it as it soars from the cello. Pines ebbs and flows like a towering tree swaying in the forest, as the melody lucidly glides above. A sense of tranquillity in the middle section provides a bed for pizzicato patterns to resonate before the melody takes flight again.
