ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Immaculate Misconceptions, recorded in June 2006, is an all-acoustic CD featuring music from and inspired by the play Immaculate Misconceptions by long-time collaborator Stephen Schrum. The play opened on June 16th and 17th, 2006 in Greensburg, PA. It was later performed in the virtual world of Second Life.

The long-time collaboration between composer Jeremy dePrisco and playwright/director Stephen Schrum resulted in this original collection of songs written from November of 2005 to June 2006 for the play Immaculate Misconceptions.

According to Schrum, Immaculate Misconceptions are those "simplistic explanations, half-truths, canonical misinterpretations, and outright disinformation received from the mouths of teachers by Catholic school students."

In his monologue performance, Schrum tells his stories of Catholic grade school and high school, finding the humorous and serious aspects of the positive - and negative - role models of his youth. With references to secular events (such as the Kennedy Assassination and the NASA moon landing), as well as more religious happenings (the world's oldest nun giving sex advice, another nun teaching Marriage Class and, of course, Vatican II and the Baltimore Catechism), Schrum seeks to discover how his Catholic school education shaped the college professor he is today.

Though not Catholic himself, Jeremy grew up in an area gripped hard by Catholic doctrine and dogma and was eager to be a part of the production since the material conjured images that went beyond the scope of the play, tapping into Jeremy’s interest in socio-political topics.

The collection, produced in a three-day recording blitz prior to the first production of the play in June 2006, features acoustic guitar and simple percussion (hand drums, brushes). This album's sensibility hearkens back to a musical era of social consciousness in our not-so-distant past.
