"Sunshowers" is a triptych exploring the resonance of the piano.
"Out of heart of light" (a fragment of text from T.S. Eliot) uses a rapid-fire rhythmic technique to sound out slowly changing tonal clusters. Chaotic repetitions of tones create unpredictable fluctuations in the sound colour, a kind of "glowing" effect.
"Ghosts" reveals a series of sustaining chords and amplifies imperfections in the decay. We hear the "ghosts" - the normally unheard details - inside the sound.
"Sunshowers" presents a sequence of cascading arpeggios, gently falling from right to left. As the harmonies gradually transform the resonance shifts across the colour spectrum like a rainbow.
