The Storm in art and music
In the foreground, a bar of sunlight retreats from the coming storm. A relative of mine said of the man isolated in a pool of light: 'That must be the loneliest man in the world.' Despite being monochromatic, gray skies can be as artistic as the most colorful sunset.
In 'The Storm', Michael Stearns captures the essence of aftermath with fading thunder, and a sound like raindrops falling on the guitar strings. Other mood masters are Steve Roach and Mychael Dana.
