The Coming Storm – harmonic series / JI, electric aeolian harp


The Coming Storm is a 25 minute recording of a thunderstorm that approaches and then releases a deluge of rain. The sounds are a combination of wind blown harmonics, the clicks of lightning, and then play of the strings of the harp by the rain as well as wind. There is some residual background noise that I can’t remove without removing the lightning strikes so it was left in. A surprising (to me) variety of sounds result from this onslaught of nature. Metallic clinks, almost light saber-esque stabs, and the sound of huge things being dragged violently across the harp. Starts out quiet and gets pretty loud.
