Thirteen relatively short works for solo piano mainly composed in the mid to late 1990’s.
‘An Anthology of Occasional Pieces (Part Two)’ comprises various works for solo piano. Most of the works were written in the mid to late 1990’s except track 3, which was composed in 2006. 'Mimetic Abstract No. 9' was composed to celebrate the birth of Eugene Herbert, and ''Lalullaby' was written at the birth of his sister Esmé in 2000.
The title ‘The human eyelid is not teartight’ is a quote from ‘Murphy’ by Samuel Beckett. (The title of the album itself also contains a reference to Beckett in his use of the term ‘Occasional Pieces’). This CD is the second in a possible series.
