“This area of South Wales has a wet climate and the hillsides are marked by lines of springs.” (AGU Blogosphere)
Therefore, Aberfan begins with the Rain Sequence. My workspace is in the attic and the idea to layer pianos originated as I listened to the rain on our metal roof so close above me.
Here is a short demo sample of 7 pianos, all playing the same part, entering moments slightly apart from one another, each with its own tempo.
