The Quietus reviews the new single from BE 'Blue Lullaby'. http://thequietus.com/articles/20957-listen-new-music-from-be-project
The new single ‘Blue Lullaby’ incorporates previously unheard vibrational signals from the European honey bee, These signals are derived from fellow collaborator Dr. Martin Bencsik’s ground breaking research into how bees communicate. The haunting signals you can hear within the track are believed to be female worker bees ‘talking’ to the unborn larvae to guide them in their future roles within the beehive.
This new musical composition takes the listener on a reflective journey, making connections to the changing seasons of life and man’s relationship with nature. The music is both melancholic and uplifting. The honey bee is in crisis; we as man are responsible – but hope is suggested. Referencing the sixteenth century Coventry Carol both musically and lyrically, it is a seasonal song evoking a communal atmosphere.
