dc.description.abstract "Trimmed to euphonic length, scooped out its inner partitions, the musical bamboo becomes a container for a cylinder of air. As the performer, most usually one of a group, drops it forcefully and rhythmically with a pounding gesture, the ejected air utters a note hardly louder than a sigh, lingering diminuendo with sustained gravity. In more complex ways than any architecture, the forest amplifies and echoes the sound. To imply the locale of the action I stretched over the scene a single banana leaf, arched not unlike the rib of a Romanesque crypt." Charlot, p. 9. en_US
