The Light and the Shade:

The song was written by Laurence Harvey in 1984 for the show ‘Cross the Bridges’.  The above video is the original super 8 footage projected during the live performance.  The original 4-track portastudio recording was imported into Cubase VST and additional orchestral parts recorded using the Garritan Personal Orchestra and SAM Brass.

‘Cross the Bridges’ was a musical stage show presenting a ‘journey through space and time’.  It featured songs by Laurence Harvey and Glyn Hughes.  The band performing the show consisted of Laurence and Glyn,  with Rob Warner (bass and vocals) and Tim Lucas (keyboards).  Staging effects were produced by Roger Hamer and Robert Coolan and a number of helpers and performers completed the cast.
