Greetings fellow bamboo blowers!

I am excited to share these new recordings with you, the digital release is already available and that link is below.
The funding campaign is for the physical discs which will include pdfs of all the notation of the pieces on the album.
Some are original compositions and some are transcriptions of the honkyoku I played.
It is a contemplative and accessible album at the crossroads of meditation, nature, and Japanese traditional music,
good I think for sharing with those perhaps not so familiar yet with shakuhachi,
and who maybe wish they could hang out in a cave for an hour listening to a flute but don't want to seek that out or sit in the dampness...!

Enjoy and thanks for your consideration,
cb

Great atmosphere! What with the dripping water, and the enclosed-cave feel of the sound, I recommend an extra sweater when listening.

Mountain Hermit's Secret Wisdom funding campaign

Hello again fellow bamboo blowers!
The funding campaign is coming along well, and I appreciate all your interest and support. Thank you!!

The campaign ends March 11, and we are very close to meeting our goal, but we’re not there yet. Extra money is very welcome, and if it’s in your budget and you feel inspired to contribute, I would be very grateful.
If we exceed the goal, the additional funds will allow us to increase the initial disc printing, widen the scope of the marketing and distribution to reach more people, and to rent an acoustically appropriate venue and promote a release show.

This project has been in the making for over two years. When I discovered this cave and experienced the resonance there and how the flute inside the cave was an analog to the air inside the flute---selecting the appropriate songs and getting back there with more flutes and recording equipment became the priority.

My hope is that listening to this album will transmit in some way the essence of the flutes, the cave, the songs, the state of consciousness and the awareness of breath that were all required to bring these recordings into being. All of these factors are elements to an experience that, hopefully, is felt as beneficial in some way, but is also just beyond the scope of what we can say in words.

Thank you so much for your consideration,
cb

Digital album available now on bandcamp
