This rain has caused major disruption in some parts of Sergiyev Posad recently. We have had 12 hour-long power outage, then hot water stopped running and moreover, internet connection got really shaky. I can’t think of any equally devastating rain to happen in recent years. It has been pouring all night with some showers the day before. During the storm, I recorded two pieces, six hours from each other.
This is how it sounded at 9pm…
…and when the lights went off, at 3am…
…and finally, the longer recording made at 3 am
I love those sounds of hundreds of thousands of leaves flopping and hissing up there (listen at 5:15). It’s like waves surging over making you feel a part of nature, not the ceo of it.
