Music in winter, inside a warm home or performance space, seems more pronounced. Maybe the warmth of heaters and the warmth or beautifully designed harmony work together to comfort our vulnerabilities of the season. How many times to do we listen to rain and snow in winter? Probably more often than we consciously think about. Musicians hear all sounds in patterns, textures, rhythms, counterpoints. Imagine this world of color in a silent place, in a warm house. Music in winter.
