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.

Ambient Rainforest

This is the sort of track that you get playing over the videos of the wonderful things about rainforests and jungles, with things like orang-utans hanging around in the trees and then the more active creatures, like colonies of ants busily harvesting a few leaves off a banana tree, to take back to the ever expanding nest.

Wonderful sounds, but I would question the use of the thunder - not every rainstorm has thunder and lightning, so why does this one? It's maybe something a little too powerful for the track, so I would just omit it, as the song is good enough on its own, without the extra gravitas.

I like the rainforest thing lol :) Um about the thunder... hmm... I guess I just wanted to intensify the emotion. I think it has a different effect before and after the song drops out so that's kinda cool i guess. You gave me something to think about...

Thanks for the review

This is a Top-Notch Ambience Piece.

I haven't judged any recent ambient pieces, but in my opinion, Ambience needs 3 things:
1-Ability to move without overpowering the Stage it sets.
2-Has to be created by true, happening emotions, memories, or thoughts.
3-...

Yeah, the song is just so good that I can't even make a good third point. This might just help me finish my final paper for college, so Great Work!
