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.


oh my...

*tear* amazing

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

I imagine...

a lush medow...

filled with forests...tropical birds sing their tune...as the sky of space rolls lazily on by...

Very nice


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.

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!

bad ass

Could make love in the rain with a hot girl while listening to this song.
