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.


Very good

Unfortunatley, sleeping to music leaves me witha wrecked MP3.

This is, simply, good. Quite well made. And i must say that i like your work on it.
Not sure what to say.

10/10, 5/5. But thats about all you get. Keep up the good work.



this is good song to just relax and sleep to


Through this song I CAN hear the rain... Truely a beauiful piece

(title in work)

This was pretty awesome! The use of rain and thunder in this really helps to set the ambient mood and to relax as well. The only thing I don't really like is that the last 30 seconds or so is basically just empty space, or at least nothing can be heard there if playing the rest of the song at a comfortable level.

"The only thing I don't really like is that the last 30 seconds or so is basically just empty space" Yeah I know, this was made with an album in mind, so ultimately it will just blend into the next song instead of fading out forever :P
