50 minute cd-r

composed performed produced by christopher orczy

christchurch new zealand may 2005

released 22 july 2005

 

MAY was (is) somewhat of a conundrum: while the weather was freezing, the music took on a warmer edge. The more uplifting pieces in the series appear on MAY: monday 9 being a prime example. In the long run, I don't feel that MAY is one of the stronger albums, and the artwork, while fitting the music, never has appealed to me.

REVIEW

"The May recording rests on a brighter notion. Gone is the fragility, the draw the curtains of the previous two months and in comes the sweep of the outdoors and mother nature. Strange considering the doubtless freeze in the Christchurch weather at the time."
