The splash in a puddle . . . the tapping on a metal roof during the night . . . the roar of a storm outside of your car. Rain makes different sounds depending on what it hits. Together, the drops can make a natural music. Yugo Nakamura demonstrates this in his video "The Origin of the Sound of Rain."
He recorded the sound of rain falling on different objects, including a snail, a glass, a rock, a flower, and more. He then played them in different orders and with varying tempos. The result is a beautiful, stormy symphony consisting of precisely 10,211,326 drops.
