This is a special piece of film to accompany the release of the live single ‘And Dream Of Sheep’. The vocal was performed live while filming Kate lying in the huge water tank at Pinewood Studios. This was to create a sense of realism, as the character in the song is lost at sea. However it became more realistic than Kate had imagined. She spent so long in the water during the first day of filming that she contracted mild hypothermia. She recovered after a day off and carried on filming. Everyone agreed it had added to the authenticity of the performance. This film was then projected onto a large oval screen which hung above the stage during the performances of her live show.
Astralis is a Chilean progrock band rooted in 1999. The musical brainchild is guitarist and singer Patricio Vera-Pinto.
The music is scouting the borders between symphonic and neo prog with the emphasis on the latter genre, especially the early Marillion and Pendragon fans will be pleased. The varied, modern sounding keyboard work is wonderful and the guitarplay powerful, often very moving.
The Spanish vocals sound warm, it is a pleasant Latin-American flavor on this beautiful album by the promising Chilean progrock band Astralis.

“I would often write songs or instrumentals around a story or event. Sometimes these could be quite long pieces with unconventional structures. I suppose I always had a free form approach to composing, and although I didn’t know it at the time, I was writing music with progressive leanings from the age of eight well in to my teens.” (Pete)
Tiger Moth Tales is essentially the brain child of Nottinghamshire based composer, multi – instrumentalist and musician Peter Jones, who has been involved in the music industry performing around the UK and recording his own material since the late 90s At fifteen months old Pete lost his sight due to Retinoblastoma.
Naked is taken from Elephant Plaza’s debut album Momentum – a story of empathy, emotions and redemption

About The Aaron Clift Experiment
Just as scientists conduct experiments by using their knowledge to explore the unknown, The Aaron Clift Experiment combines elements of classic and cutting-edge music into an innovative whole.
The band’s unique songs draw from a wide range of influences – from classic progressive rock acts like Genesis, Pink Floyd, and Rush to modern groups like Porcupine Tree and Opeth to classical and jazz composers like Beethoven, Schubert, and John Coltrane. Aside from its diversity, The Aaron Clift Experiment is dedicated to producing soulful, powerful music and an intense live show.
In 2012, the band released its debut album, “Lonely Hills,” to rave reviews from both fans and the music press and was named one of the best unsigned bands of 2013 by Prog Magazine.
With the release of its critically-acclaimed 2015 album, “Outer Light, Inner Darkness,” the band continued its ascension. The album was called “an impressive sophomore outing” by Prog Magazine, “gorgeously emotive” by Progression Magazine, and named one of the best releases of 2015 by Progradar. In 2016, The Aaron Clift Experiment was nominated for a Progressive Music Award in the Limelight category by Prog Magazine.
Today, The Aaron Clift Experiment continues to lead the way in fusing the sophistication and depth of classical music with the passion and raw power of rock and roll.
What began as an idea of how to create music has now blossomed into a full-fledged experiment. We invite you to join us in this experiment as we embark on our new path.
