Dorje’s Calabash (2006) 5:12

Calabash, MIDI bass, berimbau, caxixi, suling, bamboo recorder

This piece grew out of the bass line, which in turn inspired the “drum” parts that were collectively played on a large calabash (dried gourd) supplimented by a set of caxixi (Brazilian basket shakers). The berimbau followed, and after letting the whole thing rest for a few weeks, was finished off by the flutes—a bamboo recorder my father brought back from Japan in the 1950s and a Balinese suling.
