Most of my spare time these days I spend practising Shakuhachi, the Japanese bamboo flute. From all the instruments I play, I love the Shakuhachi most. Its rough and yet refined sound is closest to nature, like the wind going through a bamboo grove.

Whenever possible I play with the windows of my Dojo wide open, so the singing of the birds outside nicely merges with the sound of my flute. I feel the birds’ voice is very inspiring for my play.

The other day I woke up from birds’ singing which sounded much like the imitation of my Shakuhachi. HO-U HO-U RU-RU … I wonder, maybe the inspiration is both ways?
