Qin and shakuhachi, 2 pieces each w/varied parameters; cura,
1 piece

Playing in these environments (currently limited to 2 channel)
is a completely different experience - not because of delay,
but because of anticipation and spatial perception. For me,
the pieces are unique and calming in the midst of Sturm und
Drang; I hear and play the sirens of France, the guqin by a
mountain stream, shakuhachi of outer Zen outside Zen. Qin and
shakuhachi are difficult, sounding of breath and hands,
strings and bamboo, streets of ice, Special Forces, screams,
and serenity.

Rise up, mourn, meditate, and enjoy.
