Original musical composition
Since today is a rainy fall day here in Minneapolis, I chose According to the Rain for this Musical Mondays post. It’s a simple song that I composed in 2008 in an attempt to capture both the mood of a rainy day and the movement of water drops in a light rain.
The primary instrument is an electronic piano that I played over my own arrangements of strings, woodwinds and percussion. There’s also varying levels white noise in the background to suggest the sounds of rain.
The photo in the cover art was taken in beautiful Laurelhurst Park in Portland, OR, on a rainy and misty day in 1999.
