Rain – for five musicians


Rain is a chance piece for five musicians that is explicit in it movement between rhythmic consonance and dissonance. In Rain the five musicians clap without defining any beat for the majority of the piece, only aligning on a sixteenth note grid in 2 measures throughout the entire piece. Rain is intended to sound a bit like a storm passing over a house, gentle at first, growing to a cacophony, occasionally lining up into a rhythmic grid, then falling back out of phase and drifting away.
Performed by Clark Preston, Ross Reinhart, Jacob Roberts, Gbohunmi
