Long Ago Forgotten by Timothy Sawyer Shepard: Review
Timothy Sawyer Shepard, a man of many talents, has just published his fantastic album “Long Ago Forgotten,” which is comprised of 11 magnificent compositions to be enjoyed in a compelling manner. He painstakingly pieced together tunes from snippets and sounds, creating something completely new and intriguing.
In the first track, there’s a lively flow in a positively exotic way, with a mix of textures and vibrations. In ‘Conversation’ it feels as if from a surprising immersive journey, taking us to scenes of ancient Asian films to the classics of world cinema, in a splendid dimensional journey. In the following track, there’s an unfolding of life, flourishing against the tides and adversities and eventually coming to a stop. You’ll also witness a classical romantic story with a flavor of a fairy tale in Timothy’s album, followed by more serotonin-filled tracks, some featuring a dance rhythm, while others feature a tune amidst the urban chaos. The last few pieces are somewhat inspiring, sending vibrations through our existence, some more detailed in symphonies, while others are full of charm, emotion, and mysteries.
Some of the pieces feature more than a hundred samples that were intricately mixed and utilized, while some others are taken from vintage glass audio discs and smooth discs, demonstrating the inspirational commitment with which the compositions were shaped. Timothy drives his creative inspiration from a myriad of his other talents, besides great musicians. This album is nothing short of a prodigious piece of artwork that feeds its listeners the various natural and social spheres, which is worth every second of play.
