Mary Lattimore's music works like a kind of emotional synesthesia
Instead of seeing colors when she hears notes, Lattimore feels things: sadness, hope, longing, memory. She incorporates all of that into her stirring songs composed on the harp. "I feel like a lot of my music is channeling feelings or memories," she says. "I'm just doing what I want, trying to paint a picture of a memory."
The memory that forms the basis for At the Dam is particularly evocative. Lattimore received a prestigious grant from the Pew Center for Arts & Heritage - a rare honor given to only 12 people a year - and she used the money to take a trip across America with a friend, writing and recording songs at each stop along the way
Armed with little more than her harp and laptop, Lattimore drew inspiration from each location, allowing the environments in which she recorded to inform her work. The result is sweeping, delicate and beautiful music, where Lattimore's harp is sometimes bright and bouncy, sometimes distant and hazy, shrouded in a gauzy delay. The net effect feels like what it is: the recreation of moments from the past, delicate, soft and warm.
