"Sunshowers" is a triptych exploring the resonance of the piano.
"Out of heart of light" (a fragment of text from T.S. Eliot) uses a rapid-fire rhythmic technique to sound out slowly changing tonal clusters. Chaotic repetitions of tones create unpredictable fluctuations in the sound colour, a kind of "glowing" effect.
"Ghosts" reveals a series of sustaining chords and amplifies imperfections in the decay. We hear the "ghosts" - the normally unheard details - inside the sound.
"Sunshowers" presents a sequence of cascading arpeggios, gently falling from right to left. As the harmonies gradually transform the resonance shifts across the colour spectrum like a rainbow.
This is a wonderful, diverse album. Not sure "Costume" is my favorite track but it is a beautiful track. The short piano lines ring against a shifting background that give portions the feel of a concerto, except here the orchestra is replaced by sounds of a world like and unlike ours. Much better than the morose slow march approach to ambient music. jly54
