In the Rain

Natasha Barrett

The burning in my head subsides as I lie in the grass in the rain.
Fat droplets falling from the black sky,
on my cheek.
Vegetation flickers, freshness returns.

The algorithmic structure of this setting is based around the statistical simulation of rain falling onto a 2-dimensional surface. The x coordinate is translated into left-right space, the y coordinate as front-back space and pitch shift. Score files were created for use in Csound, and used to control many different sound sources.
