Max Cooper:
This is possibly my favourite track from the album, not because I think it’s anything special musically, it’s a simple track, but just because it carries a lot of feeling for me personally. It always had a strong and very specific feeling to it, so when I initially created the prophet and space echo chords, thinking I would develop it into some sort of percussive track, I soon discovered that anything I added only took away from its directness. So I left it as is, and then had a struggle trying to find the right title, given it’s specificity of feeling. Memories was the most succinct title I could find, although it’s more accurately to do with the bittersweet nature of the past. I gave this sprawling concept to the great video artist Roman De Giuli, who came up with the idea of representing our developing memories using his secret paints recipes, starting with simple colourless forms which become ever more complex, colourful and rich with pleasures and pains as we age. It’s a very abstract result, but one I think is beautiful, and fitting with the piece of music. I hope you have a few minutes to take it in as a counterbalance to the hecticness of the day.
