05 Breath Under Stone 6:28 min
‘Breath Under Stone’ was composed to reflect the mood of the mountains of the West of Ireland in high Summer. Recorded both in studio and in the open air, the sound reflects the depth of life and the continuous rhythm of nature. Rod Callan who recorded and mixed several of the tunes on this record, composed and added a complimentary guitar tune to ‘Breath Under Stone’. Rod also named this piece. A local robin who conveniently sang that day was included and his descendants continue to be paid royalty in the form of bird seed!
