“The Sound of a Memory” – Sincerely, the P


View this post on Instagram

15. The Sound Of A Memory (5:00)⁣⁣ C. Portugal, M.Turner⁣⁣ Produced by Thes One⁣⁣ Acoustic Piano – Kat Ouano⁣⁣ Recorded at PL70B, 64 Sound ⁣ ⁣⁣ “it’s the sound of the memory of many living people”⁣⁣ A final dedication to those lost along the way. When we started out, we never could have imagined a career long enough to lose anyone, yet here we are. On Friday, October 12th, 2018, @kato1o entered the tracking room at 64 Sound to play us off the album, a tradition we started on Stepfather. As she slid behind a behind the beautiful baby grand piano with a vintage U-47 slung low under the lid, I said “No Pressure” and half chuckled as I walked out. I was probably more nervous than she was, yet I didn’t give her any charts or direction so I definitely didn’t make it easy. She is the most talented keyboardist I’ve ever known, and I had full faith in her to kill it on her first take. I walked back to the control room with @tyler_karmen , leaving her alone in the tracking room behind the piano. He asked “do you want me to let the song run for her to practice?” I replied, “No, record it” then picked up the talkback mic and said, “alright, we’re just gonna let it play for you to practice some ideas, no pressure, just feel it out.” What you hear on the record is what followed, exactly as she played it on her first “practice take”. The beat faded out and she kept playing, and I began crying – I couldn’t hold back, she had captured the moment so beautifully and each note struck deep into my very purpose for existing – as I listened to the notes coming through the speaker I thought I could end it all in that moment – an existential completeness as the last note sustained and rang out. If it has to end, it should end as such.⁣⁣ #sincerelythep
