Jon Kohan’s Granite to Glass is chamber ensemble is much different than others, emphasizing an indie-folk sound that is both vibrant and welcoming. He created an incredible soundscape for track “With Every Rainfall”, and the same can be said for its accompanying visual. While the song takes its time revealing its multiple layers, the video is a vivid masterpiece from the beginning, playing with color and contrast, emphasizing small moments in a relationship. A flurry of scenery changes remind us of our own memory banks. Explains Kohen:
This piece challenges time as an A to B progression, from birth and death, to love and loss. We as human beings experience time linearly. But if time is viewed from the perspective of the universe, life as we know it is one solid chunk of existence, nonlinear and unbroken, each of its moments existing forever.
Everything and everyone has been, is, and always will be. Those we loved who are gone from this world maintain a presence forever in time itself. The rainfall metaphor represents the possibility of time traveling from moment to moment. Hearing literal whispers of past conversations every time it rains.
