Forgetting / Cassette Tape c-40 / PAR024

Christian Filardo

“Forgetting is a record I made in response to my grandmother’s Alzheimer’s. When I was 15 my grandmother lived with my family and me and we didn’t get along at all. Since then she has moved to California closer to the rest of my Mother’s family and lives in a nursing home in Antioch, California. She left on a sour note and has since forgotten who I am. On tour this summer I stopped in to see her, and she seemed wonderfully full of bliss. She would soak in the sun and had gotten very tan and seemed to re-live every moment over and over but with the same whimsy as the last. In this record I attempted to chronicle this feeling, at times scary but often mostly beautiful. Trying to relive every moment again in a new way.

This album was made with vocals, three different synthesizers, tape loops, and effects pedals and put to tape.

The record was recorded and produced at Tempe Museum of Cotemporary Art (my house) in Tempe, AZ. In the summer of 2012; Angelo Harmsworth mastered it.” – C. Fil
