"Saturday Evening at the Praskovich House" was completed during my spring break from Binghamton University in late March of 2013. I improvised the entire piece on the Praskovich family computer while Mike and his mother argued upstairs about attending a family reunion. The sun was bleeding into the den of the house, and I felt quite calm and at ease. I made the song to eliminate the tension I could feel from Mike and his mother. This piece is for them.
