‘Irretrievable’ was another work that was written for the ‘Music for Comic Books’ concert in 2015. The track was written together with Jonathan Bonny and served as a counterweight to the darker music of ‘Irreversible’. It’s one of the softest tracks on the album and spins out an endless melody between piano and vibraphone backed by some atmospheric synthesizers and guitar.
The track went back and forth between Jonathan and me, until we felt that it was finished. The music around the 3 minute mark has to be one of my favorite moments I’ve ever written, and the additions that Jonathan made to the track pushed it to another level.
