“Aberfan” (Altered Rain, excerpt)

“Altered Rain” is a demo excerpt of 7 piano parts from my new composition Aberfan. Conceived to represent the thousands of people coming down the hillside following the mass funeral on a “windswept, grey” Thursday less than one week after the disaster, this musical section turns the Rain Sequence upside down.

This is Ronnie Davis, the first boy photographed by IC Rapoport in the aftermath of the tragedy.  He lost his older brother in the landslide and his house, close to the school, was destroyed.  He stands among the ruins.

Please help fund the recording.  All contributions are greatly appreciated.  DONATE NOW
