Multitrack Project

 

As Chief Executive of Lynwood Music, the Promoters and Publishers of the Music of Andrew Downes, I have embarked on a project of creating promotional multitrack recordings, mixing sampled sounds with live performances. I am singing and playing the violin, viola, and recorder on these recordings.
