In setting the somber stoic theme of this album, I attempt to create an atmospheric musical evocation of tears and grief in this mournful piece, by use of the ancient Greek Hypodorian mode - the equivalent intervals as A-A on the white notes of the piano (but heard here in the pristine focus of just intonation), this mode is sometimes referred to as the 'natural minor' and is indeed, the basis of our modern minor keys.

Using harmonics, I attempt to create the sharp feeling of cold rain and all its connotations of sadness.
