Sample: Raining Fall

 

“…it’s a stunning sounding recording and full of feeling.  I’ve listened to it over and over and the sense it gives of the monastery life is incredible!

Fall is such a myriad of colors.  The extraordinary beauty of the landscape is hard to believe without seeing for yourself.  This region of the Catskills is a forest preserve and the diversity of flora is fantastic.

 

 

 

 

The monastery itself is nestled on the hillside above the lake as you probably have seen from previous photos.  There is a path to the top of the mountain also that will give a tremendous view of the lake and surrounding areas.

 

 

 

I recorded Raining Fall from the porch of the gatehouse during a fall rain taking my cues from the sounds of the wind, rain and rustling leaves.  Samu II was also recorded outdoors as I listened to the monks unloading firewood at the back of the monastery.

 

 

 

 

Return to Mountain contains a companion sketch to Raining Fall entitled Autumn Wind.

 

 

 

Anthony Bez, classical guitarist and a student of the dharma from the New York City area graced us with a subtle and delicate rendition of ‘Sakura’ in which sound and silence seemed to merge.”
