TIGER M - Birthday 24 (The Rainy Song)

Author Comments


Composed in 2008 on my 24th Birthday. Utilizing my recording equipment
in The Biding House [at the time] -- Piano, drums, synths and recorded rain-water. =...

This memory drenched in water [literally] (if a memory could be physical]
is an ethereal etude
and homage to Three days-raining-non-stop while in Valdosta, Georgia in 2008.

Walking back home from the campus to my studio near called The Biding House--
dripping wet with rain that day (my Birthday) -- dried off I did and began composing
the memorable tune that sailed into my head moments prior outside in the pouring rain. ^^

All the way from the University which I wasn't enrolled in at the time after
leaving Performing Arts major in 2006 at Valdosta State University; on-campus
I had been present to exercise prior to the downpour before and after leaving
"The Complex" as it is called now. ("The New Graduation Building" / "Recreation Center.")

Thinking back on the day, my MP3 player for exercising and music review luckily
had been forgotten and was stored safe in The Biding House. ^^
It POURED rain and the Umbrella I had been given got RIPPED upward
and I kept singing though I kept singing the tune louder -- -- Umbrella wouldn't go up. =^^;
Set by my side poking "out" cars passing by had peering-drivers behind the windshields looking.
The Umbrella
stayed that way
all the way to The Biding House and note-by-note I remembered every cold-drop-of-rain.
This resulted. ^_^

As it rained, I kept humming this sudden memorable tune as inspired as it poured
ON ME then began singing it laughing in the rain as it came down. =) Inside finally,
I sat and began Composing with Cakewalk Kinetic as my DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) with
Sony and SourceForge for assistance sharing elements for audio enhancement and clarity. =

I came up with "The City That Always Rains" or "The Town That Never Stops Raining"
as an idea still lurking =3 This is the very first BGM [Background Music] for it should it
leave concept as the Action/RPG concept I put it to
may have more than one rendition of this melody
including an orchestral and club/dance version. =3
Also " The Wrong Room (Unlocked Mix) and (Never Lost Mix) " likely
will get redos for the Action/RPG too as they may just fit...-- but I'm
ahead of myself. ^_^;

On this tune
Ironically today is the 20th (I was twenty-four exactly that day) five days before this
year's Christmas and over-cast with light drizzle as this is being typed to share. =)
Towards home-destination that day--first day of a week of on-and-off-raining--
it rained for THREE days non-stop and then kept "stopping" and "starting"
and "Stopping" and "Starting." =^^;=

I put this in the music which I recorded (yes. I went outside and did ^^) then enhanced it
(the audio) and hope You like it. ^_^ The Umbrella ripped upward I remember most that day.
(And may give homage visually someday) The song came next and Eight Years later-- this
distribution five days before six-days-near-year's-end that year. =3

You rock for taking the time to read all of that given You did =^_^=
Thank You for Listening =D
