A | PART is the socially distanced recording project created by Spanish guitarist, arranger and producer Pablo Tato in 2020.
When the COVID-19 pandemic hit in the early months of 2020, musicians around the world saw their busy diaries full of gigs, sessions and performances disappear into thin air, their creative output stopped for months.
A | PART was Pablo's response to keep creating, trying to challenge the idea of the need for musicians to be in the same room to make beautiful, heartfelt music.
Pablo carefully selected a collection of ten of his favourites songs to cover, wrote the arrangements and curated a different lineup for every one of them, getting more than 30 musicians involved, who recorded remotely in their own home studios. All these songs were mixed and produced afterwards by Pablo.
The only rule: to make music together, being A | PART from each other.
A limited edition 2-LP vinyl was released in November 2021, a compilation of all the songs released by A | PART during 2020.
The album includes all 10 covers recorded remotely by 35 musicians in their own home studios during 9 months. All song were curated, arranged and mixed by Pablo Tato and mastered by Nick Watson at Fluid Mastering.
A project put together to expand creativity and connect musicians from a distance during the COVID-19 lockdowns, A | PART features many incredible musicians and singers, such as Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Ed Harcourt, Moisés P. Sánchez or Maud the Moth among many others.
