My music is often inspired by “visions” (for lack of a better term) that I see. Entire scenes will play out in my mind, and the music will come with them as a soundtrack.
For “Light Showers”, I saw a young woman walking outside during a sunny day, clad in a raincoat and carrying an umbrella. Rain begins to fall. Each drop sounds a musical tone as it lands, and after a short time, an entire symphony plays around the woman.
She smiles, removes her raincoat, and transforms into a little girl wearing a brightly-colored dress. She dances in the rain, having a wonderful time. As she dances, the same young woman from before watches the girl from a window. Her face betrays a melancholy expression, as though she is watching a dream or a memory.
The rain stops and the sun returns. The little girl dons her raincoat again, transforms back into an adult, and continues on her way.
