The sound of rain made with single water drops sampled 10 million times

Yugo Nakamura is one of the most famous digital designers in the world. In his latest project, The Origin of the Sound of the Rain, he wanted to prove that a single drop of water sampled and reproduced a million times would actually sound like rain. And it really does.

For his experiment he used the sound of an individual water drop falling on a variety of surfaces including dirt, glass, wood, a leaf, and a snail.

The video was created for the TV Program TECHNE, which gives a behind-the-scenes look at the creative techniques employed by the motion graphics industry.
