Programme Notes

I wrote Sun and Rain after I discovered an old notebook which contained angst-filled poetry that my now wife, Lisa, had written as a teenager. The words really jumped out at me as something that would work well in a musical context. This is one of many poems that I used when writing my two band albums, I Can See You and Strange Machine.

Sun and Rain is really more of an instrumental and the inclusion of vocals sparingly is purposely done as a musical effect. While the recording did not involve many musicians, it does have a lot of changes in mood, instrumentation and electronics. I really experimented a lot with trying to create big contrasts in small sections in a short duration between the in-your-face vs. introspectiveness. Often in life, we must turn on a dime between those two states.

– Frank Horvat

Lyrics

I remember when the days were sunny
All day long it shone
As the rain comes down I see mistakes here
The mistakes I made
