You and the Rain

Recommended Posts

You and the Rain, for strings orchestra.

A piece I wrote in 1 day, having a cold, being unable to go outside, waiting for my girlfriend to come to see me, while raining outside...

Never have written so fast before, definitely she makes the difference.

It's very beautiful. One can imagine the rain outside. Rich harmonies, love it.

(Puccini wrote I Crisantemi for string quartet or string orchestra in one night... A wonderful piece.)

Wow I am at a loss for words and I can just feel it in the melodic lines like the yearning to see your girlfriend. This is such a beautiful piece of music and I could honestly listen to this several times and never get sick of it

Despite the lack of melodic and atmospherical development, this is great background music. I do love the atmosphere, though it does lack development. I would leave this piece as is despite my comments.

I agree it is beautiful. Nice, rich harmonies and a sense of longing. Try add more dynamics by playing around with the texture and volume. It is a bit blocky and dense at times. Simply changing particular note volumes or swells for example can have an astonishing effect;it helps with getting more transparency and enables you to build more distinctive movement of the notes or between the chords. Otherwise well done, I like it!

Thank you all for your comments, I think it will automatically sound more vivid in a real orchestra, I used the libraries into the Sibelius so I didn't program the modulation as it should, so it does sound with lack of dynamic contrast, later I might create a new recording.
