The low fi recording of this track, makes the melody (if possible) able to touch listener's soul even more than if it would have been recorded on a clean, modern piano. This kind of recording, adds some nuances of melancholy to the track. I imagine Dirk, playing at night, with the sostenuto pedal pressed playing with the moon spying on him through the window..
