Today I’m introducing you yo the Irish composer Jamie Evans, from Dublin, and the track Distant Memories. Jamies main instruments is saxophone and guitar and the story on why he suddenly started releasing piano music is a good one:
I play sax and guitar in a band with some very old friends of mine that I was in school with back in the 80s. Because we were unable to meet up to practice during covid lockdown, I came up with the idea that we should all write some short piano pieces, the rules being that each piece should be written in a day and be simple enough to be recorded without any complicated arranging or mixing.
The track Distant memories was released on the album The Art of Remembering, which came out on the 28th of may, 2021.
Tell us something about your track Distant memories!
As often happens when I write quickly and release myself from the need to be clever or complicated, I find that this for some reason taps straight into a mood and an emotion from the past and, in its simplicity, transports me there.
Thank you for this Jamie!
