Just After the Rain

for stereo tape

Just After the Rain (2006) The cool and moist ground just after a rain creates a world in which sound is vivid and clear. In this composition I try to imagine a world in which sounds are refracted in a dramatic manner analogous to light waves refracted through water. This composition takes several wet sonic excursions in an effort to create my own prismatic soundscape. Although water serves as a unifying factor, the journey through this sound world visits some unexpected places.
