And The Rain Came

from Lost Songs by The Nethered



I began writing a few months after the pandemic hit, which was only just after rain had finally extinguished the vast, seemingly endless bushfires that blackened so much of south-eastern Australia. The impact of drought was still clearly visible where I was writing and recording in country NSW.

We still hadn't had a lot of rain beyond that first mighty fall. I was at Mark's place, alone and isolated, able to make as much noise as I liked. I was playing around recording a few instruments - a huluzi, a Thai flute, recorders, a sharnai, a punji and others. Out of nowhere, sheets of heavy rain cascaded from the sky. It almost felt like I had called it. I didn't know then that we would see two years of record-breaking rain, complete with '1000 year' floods.

At this point, the rain still brought joy and felt like a blessing, not a curse.
