I am not sure why I decided to record a piece this morning, before even having a second cup of coffee. But I sat down and pulled over the most convenient score. I wrote this piece in Crestone, Colorado in 2014 when on a retreat. Here I am playing one of my jinashi shakuhachi, so a lot of these elements are self-generated… then infused with my experiences with my teachers, with time, and my environment today (which is very much different from 2014). Have a listen.
I have begun posting shakuhachi for sale (not Blue Cloud Mountain, which are still in development) on the “Shakuhachi for Sale” page of this site. These are flutes that I have purchased over the past ten years and am now selling to try to make ends meet and cover legal bills. Check back for more in the future.
Recorded this on a 1.8 for a student, thought I’d share…
Some improvisational sounds with my natural surroundings this morning. I had just listening to a Johnny Chang Wandelweiser improv :). Grasses, crows, mountain and black capped chickadees, Chautauqua Mountain, breeze, pines, grasses, a truck, a plane and a train can all be heard.
