Works » By Title » R » the rain has a slap and a curve (8:33 / 1997)

Jon Christopher Nelson

for computer-generated tape

the rain has a slap and a curve (1997) for computer-generated tape is based upon excerpts from Robert Gregory’s poem rain, convenience store, hungry cats. The majority of the sonic material is derived from a recording of the poet reading the following three lines of the poem:
the rain has a slap and a curve
the path it falls on curves also
even after the rain you can hear a whisper of rain

The composition is divided into three main sections that explore the sonic possibilities of the source material.
