Pluviophile: someone who finds joy and peace of mind when it rains

Australian artist theAdelaidean’s fourth solo release for Projekt takes the listener on an ambient journey through the worlds of water: oceans, rivers, lakes, and rain itself. Changeable yet changeless, the first half of this double album shows the evolution of theAdelaidean as a composer and performer. It blends electronics and field recordings in a five-movement symphony to the weather of modern life from untouched forests to busy cityscapes. A generated static energy captures nature’s music for those moments when the nearest sun shower might be hours away or thunderstorms a distant memory. Layers of natural and urban sounds dance with muted melodic synths through timelessly crisp harmonic spaces rewarding deeper listens and backgrounding alike.

The final track, more than an hour of dark ambience, spirals deep into the kind of rain that comes when most of the world is asleep. Soft with an ever-changing rhythmic stillness, “Witching Hour Weather” is a calm companion for insomniacs and seekers of inner truths alike.

Composed and created in the midst of an Australian drought, SOUNDS LIKE RAIN is both a love song and a summoning spell for one of nature’s most precious gifts.

Rain is inspiration. Rain is eternal. Rain is music. Rain is life.
