New Uluru Rain Michael D. Konkin

New Uluru Rain is a musical composition, a changing soundscape, and a desert metaphor; a reinterpretation of a rare summer storm in an electroacoustic musical format. Also composed as an eight-channel piece, it was inspired by the natural counterpoint and dynamic motion of a changing landscape. The rhetorical oxymoron of accessible yet abstract yet recognizable composing, was a central theme in its inception.

It was created through a collage of computer transformation processes of several sound sources, including an Australian didgeridoo, voice, a number of orchestral instruments, and a rainfall backdrop.
