In the last week of April 2015, my friends Ken and Eddie drove from Binghamton, NY to visit me in Pittsburgh and put on a performance of Ken’s electronic project, (exitpost). While these two friends slept the mornings away, I spent that quiet time mastering the recording of two pieces that I made on the night of the 28th. I intended for the pieces to be compiled with a third, to-be-determined loop in order to create an LP length release, but when I revisited the tracks after a long, tiresome, and incredibly fun weekend in Binghamton, I realized that the two had a specific temporal significance. They were recorded in a state happiness, during a span of time where I had (just an hour or so before) landed a new job and also realized that my close friends would soon be with me. The last week of April and the beginning of May were an amazing few days of my life - a time filled with happiness, excitement, and, in some strangely positive way, nervousness, exhaustion, and stress.
“Two Pieces” is the musical representation of a significant, yet short period of my life - a time where life was exciting, where things actually changed, and where living, for once, felt really good. I hope that week means something more in the long run.
