Liner notes

Remix EP contains a number of remixes commissioned around the release of John Metcalfe’s The Appearance of Colour album.

These remixes can now be found in one place for the first time and are available to download and stream.

One of the mixes, Parsal, comes from Grasscut, Andrew Phillips and Marcus O’Dair, purveyours of evocative electronic music

“It was a pleasure to work on a remix for John, and I found the rhythmic viola playing in the second half of Parsal particularly inspiring. Remixes are often wonderful journeys of discovery, to try to create something different from, but complementary to the original track. I found myself layering John’s viola though pitch shifters and delays to create rhythmic effects, mixing in moogs, and even singing ‘y drws ar mor’ (a door to the sea) in Welsh, as a tribute to Parsal itself, a place in Gwynedd in mid Wales, where my family is from, and where John spends a lot of time.”

    John Metcalfe

    Released 04 June 2015

    Composer, producer, classical violist, guitarist, and arranger to A-list pop stars, John Metcalfe has always been a name worth seeking out. The Appearance of Colour presents Metcalfe as a recording artist - as front man, maestro and manipulator of sounds. A carefully crafted listening experience with a beginning, middle and end, in which no two tracks sound or feel the same.
