The Voice of the Rain

And who art thou? said I to the soft-falling shower,
Which, strange to tell, gave me an answer, as here translated:
I am the Poem of Earth, said the voice of the rain,
Eternal I rise impalpable out of the land and the bottomless sea,
Upward to heaven, whence, vaguely form'd, altogether changed, and
yet the same,
I descend to lave the drouths, atomies, dust-layers of the globe,
And all that in them without me were seeds only, latent, unborn;
And forever, by day and night, I give back life to my own origin,
and make pure and beautify it;
(For song, issuing from its birth-place, after fulfilment, wandering,
Reck'd or unreck'd, duly with love returns.)

- Walt Whitman

I feel a very strong attachment to this song, I've never made anything like it. I composed it in the rain, I think it reflects all the emotions I've been feeling lately. It took only 2 days to make, everything just came to me, it's almost as if it wrote itself. I'm still in disbelief that I created it.

Rain/thunder/birds samples are from Freesound.org

Thanks F-777 for helping me brainstorm a title. I happened to find this poem when googling my prospective title, I decided to dedicate the song to it.

I like this a lot.

Very slow and sad, if a bit repetitive. I let it loop for about an hour, while I did my homework. Kudos to you for this real piece of art. ;)

"for about an hour"

Alright =P

Ha, I let this loop several times as I was making a catch up post in my new club, which I thank you for joining. ;) Anyway, very relaxing and nice use of the sound effects here. It was though very repetitive. Perhaps trying to get a little bit of variety in there would make this a better submission to listen to. It is pretty good ambient music though and would go good with a lot of submissions that needed a slow/sad piece of audio to match the animation and concept of their flash. Overall, not too bad and useful for a sad flash.

I know it's a bit repetitve, I thought it was a good length though. I thought about adding more stuff to it but my soundcard was begging me to stop raping it so I couldn't do much more to this O_o Also I was afraid I would ruin the mood.

Thanks for the review, i hope someone uses it for a flash :D

not bad at all.

Has a really relaxing feel to it and i think thats importent to the over all feeling of the song. I enjoy the rain sounds and such in the background. Just something i think you'd hear in a rain forest (Due to the ambient sexyness) Over all a pretty nice track to listen to. Gets a little repetitive but its very nice to listen to.
