Just as it starts to Monsoon

Just as it starts to monsoon is an ongoing series of rhythmic rainstorms in which a group of people are divided into three sections in a seated arrangement. Each section is assigned a percussive gesture: to stomp, to pat the knee, or to rub the hands together. The group is then conducted by Dana Carter to mimic the sound of varying stages of a storm. The role of conductor can be passed on to other members of the space by walking and trading seats. The title is a phrase inspired by a Brian Eno song. This piece was first recorded with the help of Rob Roy Campbell. (please turn your sound up or wear headphones to listen.)
