Banyen's Description: 

On Deuter’s Bamboo Forest, the pieces expand in spirit and the soul of the bamboo flute creates a wider musical experience than ever before. Perfect for meditation, relaxation and the healing arts.

On Bamboo Forest some of the pieces are Shakuhachi solo, while in others I have expanded the spirit and the soul of this bamboo flute to include a wider musical experience. It is really an art to create sound with the Shakuhachi, and because of that, because it’s so free there is a very wide spectrum in the sound. You can change it, you can alter it, you can stretch it, you can push something, you can be very forceful or you can be incredibly soft and sweet. You have to be totally immersed in the moment to play it. There is hardly any instrument that creates such a silent mind, a quiet mind, a space of meditation. With Bamboo Forest I share a piece of my soul with the listener and hopefully it translates to a similar experience of silence and relaxation.

The Shakuhachi is a Japanese flute that has been used for hundreds of years in Zen as a meditation practice. Each of these 5 holed flutes is a unique instrument that, through the richness of its sound and great overtone structures, calms the mind of player and listener.

This recording was originally released as Flowers of Silence.
