9. Rain Now and Then
D shakuhachi

In February 2011, I experienced shear delight at watching rain gently fall on my thirsty garden... sensations I had forgotten. The rain came and went throughout the day as I played my shakuhachi by the window, jotting down melodic ideas and colours until it was complete.


私はメルボルンの南、ビーチの近くに住んでいます。2011年の夏、平年雨が降らない時期に、長い干ばつの後で恵みの雨が降りました。雨が上がり、私の窓の外に見ると、雨に濡れた花や緑が、太陽に輝いていて、とても美しかった。その日、Jazz singer, Rachel FerrellさんのCDを聞きました。美し声の影響で、雨を見ながら、「なつしぐれ」 と言う曲が生まれました。
