The Scent of Rain on Dry Earth

from 4.00

5', for vibraphone and marimba

I moved from Asheville, North Carolina to Houston, Texas in the summer of 2011 with two of my closest friends, also from the Carolinas. None of us were prepared for the heat, or for the drought being experienced by the city. This piece was written months later, during the first real rainfall after months of drought. The title is a translation of the greek petrichor, literally meaning "the scent of rain on dry earth". The piece is dedicated to my dear friend and fantastic percussionist Rebecca McDaniel.
