Under the Weather portrays in musical, and more literal terms, water in motion. Isolated drips, impending storm, distant rumbles, crashing thunder and lightning, eventual calm sunlight and rolling surf are all implied by the music and the electronic sounds, most of which are unaltered from their obvious sources. Under the Weather was written for my wife Cindy, whose storms always end in sunshine, and my colleague and friend, Bill Peterson, whose "Storm Fantasies for the Nineteenth-Century Organ in France," appeared in Keyboard Perspectives, volume II (2009), and was subsequently translated and published in the Belgian periodical, Orgelkunst, in 2010.
