As a member of a British Services Army Family I spent a number of years in exotic climes. Like a lot of
my creative work �Tropical Rain� was inspired by the exotic sights, sounds, colours and scents of my
early experiences. Personal memories of Hong Kong, Kowloon and the odd �mountain�, The Peak, spring
to mind with this piece. The monsoons of that region were terrifyingly wild, but this piece represents
only gentle rain. The tune moulded itself to the rhythm of rain I recently experienced and the descending
nature of the repeated phrase invokes the hypnotic rhythm and hints at a resolution, possibly through
cessation. It can be repeated �ad infinitum� for a truly hypnotically relaxing experience.
It is scored for a Flute, Oboe d� Amore (for it�s particularly mellow tone and lower range) and a Bass
Clarinet for it�s dark richness of tone. Contrasted with the bright flute and �jingling� harp, representing
rain, the totality is underpinned with relatively ambient strings as a mere foil of a background. Once the
phrase sequence is completed the phrase is taken over by the strings and the woodwind is obliged to
become the foil.
A nice little concert piece which is surprisingly easy to play and also works well on an organ or a piano.
