This Unlikely Thing emerged as a collaboration between Colombian composer/songwriter Andea Hoyos and Brooklyn-based producer and multi-instrumentalist Dylan McKinstry. As Andrea describes it, this song “is a hymn for OneBeat, a reminder of the experiences we had there.” On the final day of the program, Andrea wrote a heartfelt reflection about OneBeat with the same title: “For the past four weeks, a group of 35 people have been sharing sound, ideas, thoughts, laughter, dance steps, workshops, music, videos, movements, meals, sunrises, sunsets, walks to the beach, and thousands of other beautiful things. From the beginning of the residency, there was an energy in the air that got thicker as time passed by. The energy of love. Love as a decision. We did not know each other, yet from the beginning we were willing to become a family and a community. And that’s what we have become.”
“This Unlikely Thing” was primarily recorded and mixed by Dylan, with additional recording, mixing and mastering by Christopher Botta and Jeremy Thal.
