I no longer remem­ber the first time I saw him. There’s one mem­o­ry that’s more vivid than the rest, that has record­ed over all the pre­vi­ous ones like an old video tape: we are argu­ing in the play­ground and I whack him, hard. I can no longer remem­ber what the argu­ment was about and I’ve for­got­ten what hap­pened after­wards. The mem­o­ry is brief, it lasts from the sec­ond before I hit his chin until just after that. The impact. Nothing more, noth­ing less. The moment a part of my body touch­es him, that’s when the tape stops.”

Viol play­er Liam Byrne and writer Angelo Tijssens try to find a voice with­in their com­mon mem­o­ries. What do you remem­ber? What’s worth keep­ing? How do you forget?
