Inspired by the death of his father, Sebastian Rochford describes the album as a “short diary of loss”, “a sonic memory, created with love, out of need for comfort”. Together Rochford and Kit Downes explore grief and melancholy through deeply poignant musicianship.
The album’s last track Even Now I Think of Her was composed by his father, Aberdeen poet Gerard Rochford, concluding the album with a beautiful, yet hauntingly sad mood.
A Short Diary was produced and mastered by ECM founder Manfred Eicher.
