Altitude - Festive Download 2014

It's that time of year again, when we offer you all up a festive freebie, and this time we've taken the opportunity to make a video. Well, borrow a video, anyway!

Also Eden - Altitude

Back in September (2014), the five of us went up to Snowdonia for a writing session at a house called Hafod Y Gwynt, where Rich goes once a year for a holiday with his mates in the Avon Hang Gliding & Paragliding Club. He wrote a little descending riff and came up with some chords for a chorus and then buggered off to fly up Snowdon, whilst the others carried on working. The riff stayed with him while he flew and so the "top level" theme of the song became about flying (although, as usual, there's a lot more going on in there than that).

This is essentially a demo version of the track, engineered by guitarist, Si Rogers, and mixed and mastered by Rich. The final version will appear on the forthcoming album, Contours.

The video used is courtesy of Rich's friend, Wayne Seeley and features various other of his mates thermalling with Wayne. Rich isn't among them, as he bombed out at about 20km that day.
