Story

Because so much of Silencio was recorded rubato, or not in strict time, stacking multiple piano tracks was a tricky business, and I had to rely completely on feel. This piece was especially risky as it floated out of time from start to finish, and the placement of individual melody notes was absolutely critical. Those melody notes were highlighted by John Catching's cello lines on the bridge. Sanctuary suggests warmth and safety, which is what Gretchen thought of when she first heard this piece and gave it its name.
