Today I’m introducing you to the track Memento Mori by the American composer and piano player Cameron Fitzpatrick from the United States. Cameron started playing the violin at the age of four but then moved on to play the piano and sing. He has played in progressive rock band but is now back to making instrumental music.
The track Memento More was released as a single on the 19th of may, but will also be part of an upcoming album.
Tell us something about your track Memento Mori!
The track is titled Memento Mori, which means to remember death. The album has a very loose narrative, following a person from their birth to their death, and Memento Mori is the moment in their life where they are forced to confront and prepare for their imminent death. To reflect that, I tried to keep the piece slow and methodical, but with an ominous note and, of course, powerful sadness. On a lighter note, while recording, I often had to redo takes because my cats couldn’t be quiet long enough for me to finish playing the piece! I recorded a lot of little “meows” that day.
Thank you for sending me this Cameron!
