Product details

i hear you, like Rain is a minimalist transcription and interpretation of summer rain on a tent as experienced with my children during a coastal camping trip to Walkerville, South Gippsland, Victoria. Rain is an anonymous character that speaks to you through memories of childhood experience. Rewards for deep listening are displaced speech patterns imbedded in the layered melodic and harmonic structures of the work.

Published by: Australian Music Centre — 1 digital (PDF) facsimile score (49p. -- A3 (portrait))

Difficulty: Advanced — Phasing. Complex rhythm and ensemble integration. Play to click track.

This piece was written for my friends in the Melbourne music community who share-owe a set of 37 chromatically tuned cowbells. Thanks to Daniel Richardson and Prof. Elliott Gyger for their invaluable advice on the score, composition, and all things rain.
