the rain in its avoided effects

The rain in its avoided effects (2015) is a solo trumpet composition/installation produced specifically for Internet release. Originally released by Relay Records New Composers in 2015, the rain is re-released on as Relay Records Solo Series 001 in 2019.

The material for the rain in its avoided effects was recorded in Athens, GA, with recording engineer Tom Lewis, and reassembled in Mexico City. The recording is meant to pass in and out of your ambient environment. If possible, play through speakers at a volume that does not overwhelm the space around you.
