Listening to rain

April 8, 2006

raincoming.jpgWhen I’m either pregnant with a new piece of music, or actually composing, I don’t listen to other music. Instead, I listen to rain, and thunder. I have hours and hours of it on my computer. I have several friends who hate rain and actuallly get quite depressed when it rains. Not me. I love to listen to rain. Rain is rare here in LA, even when it’s actually raining I have to put on additional rain sounds through my computer speakers. It’s so calming to me. I can have it playing while I’m composing, or inputting notes into the score, or playing the keyboard. Occasionally the thunder will get in the way for a moment, but I have it on its own volume control.
