for ice rain field recording, two marimbas each with one or more players, vibraphone with two players, two glockenspiel, and xylophone (2016)
duration is 9′
I listened to the sound of an ice rain crackle on the leaves of a magnolia tree, and imagined how the changing density, temperature and humidity of the air effects the speed and quality of the sound it carries. Sound should travel more quickly through precipitation. What would the ice rain sound like on a hot, dry day? Does all that ice in the air scatter and dampen the sound? In this piece, we hear the unaltered field recording of the ice rain on the leaves of the tree, and we hear the percussion depiction of the changing speed of sound.
