A memory of Seville

Colin Ventura reimagines a traditional flamenco dance from Seville.

"I started by making an edit of the recording, reshaping and rearranging it. Since this is the 'memory' version of this recording, I was thinking about how our memories play tricks on us, how what we remember isn't always how things were, that as time continues to pass, memories can degrade. I allowed the piece to slow as being played on a machine that was running out of power, the memory fading. Then, perhaps, something reminds of that time in Seville, and the music flows again before, inevitably, declining once more."
