Today’s post is no April Fool’s joke: I managed to eke out another release in time for the April Bandcamp Friday: Péchés d’âge moyen II: One Week in March.
It’s half the tracks of Péchés d’âge moyen, which was not my original intent. I’d hoped to record at least another ten, but with time dwindling, I opted instead to record the five pieces I wrote the week of 14-18 March 2022.
I managed to compose one piece each day that week, and it was an eventful one: Pi Day (14 March), The Ides of March (15 March), and Saint Patrick’s Day (17 March) all fell within days of one another.
The track listing is as follows:
- “Pi Day” (Monday, 14 March 2022)
- “The Ides of March” (Tuesday, 15 March 2022)
- “Downpour” (Wednesday, 16 March 2022)
- “Saint Patrick’s Day Jig” (Thursday, 17 March 2022)
- “An Impressionist’s Friday Afternoon” (Friday, 18 March 2022)
There’s also a bonus track version of “Pi Day,” which I recorded at school on a Baldwin Acrosonic spinet piano (the same piano used in Péchés d’âge moyen. Again, I’d hoped to record the whole thing on there, but it just wasn’t possible given time constraints and work commitments. Instead, I played the tracks on my Casio CDP-S100.
And, if you’re feeling really generous—or would like something pretty to hang on your walls—I’m selling the one-of-kind painting I used for the album cover. It’s called “Springtime.”
Finally, there’s all of my other great music.
