Lenore’s Pet Raven Edgar” is a 6 hour piece. The reasoning behind doing it was just to see if it could be done, a six hour piece of music completed within a week. Each recorded in the evening, much of it done while drinking Jameson Whiskey, but not enough to get drunk. I have stated before that I don’t always inted to make a long piece of music, I merely allow it to happen. Other times I do make a piece of music that the intention is there. All of the extremely long pieces have a time duration goal in mind. I put myself under these “tasks” and “deadlines” for the sake of accomplishing the goal itself. After doing the piece, I had no idea of a title. The working title was something infering to an elf that lives under a tree in my back yard that tells peoples secrets. While listening the piece, my wife said it reminded her of Edgar Allen Poe. I thought that to be a great reference, especially with the Jameson influence. Thus, the title “Lenore’s Pet Raven Edgar” emmerged.
