This piece is inspired by the day of a private function I played at in Wake Road, Coatesville, north-west of Auckland. Needless to say it was a rainy day – but at times the rain abated; at times it grew more intense than before; at times it only served to illuminate the natural beauty of the scenery up in that area of Auckland. In this piece, I have tried to capture all of this. The more ‘flowing’ aspects of the piece were intended to capture the sometimes cathartic nature of rain, and the occasionally abrupt changes in feel, texture and tonality were inspired by the abrupt changes in weather that we in Auckland often experience!
