Weekend Work and Contemplation Jam: Gianfranco Pescetti’s “The Wake”

Some weekends are for raucous fun, others for grueling yard work, and others yet for catching up on writing, web design work, and resetting focus. For this particular writer on this particular weekend, the goals for the days off of the 9-5 are to balance between buckling down on computer projects and allowing time to reset, relax, and clear some mindspace. Thus, loud bangers, singalong anthems, and upbeat beatdowns aren’t the vibe for this particular early May weekend. Instead, Gianfranco Pescetti has entered the conversation and his contribution to the vibe is nothing short of stellar.

When I write, read, or work on the numerous web projects I (over)commit myself to, I need instrumental music that will center and focus me. At times, that music is accompanied by some medical assistance in whatever form feels most appropriate at the time… and, at times, a sober mind is truly necessary. However, with either mindset, good tunes are a must. The latest single from international nomad and artist Gianfranco Pescetti – “The Wake” – is a perfect backdrop to join the likes of Air, the instrumental edition of Wu-Tang Meets the Indie Culture, instrumentals from Cosmopolis, Spencer Elliott, and several others on a playlist that will power this weekend and many more to follow.

You can find the track on Spotify and Bandcamp now, as well as check out more at gianfrancopescetti.com.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
