First sketches for ‘Rain’ and ‘White Peaks’, looking for guitar tunings and chord progressions. We could open the show with ‘Rain’, to create a zone between the moment people enter the concert hall, coming in from outside, leaving their coat at the counter and the moment the show begins.
It’s a transit zone, a short time span to relax and get mentally adjusted for the show. We could playback recorded rain and evoke it in the imagery. After a couple of minutes, two, three, the rain starts to form a rhythmical pattern. And the first track begins, ‘White Peaks’, the majestic opening.
