I knew I wanted to arrange a piece from one of the Ace Attorney games, but I had originally decided to use a courtroom theme. Then I realized almost none of the songs I had chosen for this album were anything cheerful. If there’s one thing the Ace Attorney series does really well, it’s cheerful upbeat music. For this arrangement, I imagined rain: at first, there’s wind and a couple droplets, then you start hearing more wind as parts of your house move and bigger droplets run down the drains. Then it gets really percussive as it really starts coming down. Eventually, the storm subsides and there are only small droplets again. I decided to try to get as many different kinds of sound from the cello as I could. Some of the effects I used to get the sounds were: hitting the string with the wood of the bow, knocking on the front and sides of the instrument, putting rosin on the bow in front of the mic, moving the bow up and down the strings rather than across, and pulling the wood of the bow against the front of the instrument.
