水琴窟 – Suikinkutsu

Download Here

Last night I finally had some time to fix some of my audio recordings, so I decided to update an old bandcamp release of mine with this water-related recording of a Suikinkutsu. For those who have never heard of suikinkutsu, you can read about it here.  They are very quiet garden instruments, very difficult to find nowadays. And, if you are lucky enough to come across one, you may have a very hard time to listen to it, in today’s noisy city. I recorded this in a very small Japanese garden in Tokyo.

You can also find another of my audio recording of a suikinkutsu on this compilation from the netlabel ‘Green Field Recordings’. This one was recorded in someone’s house.

Enjoy!
