The Alto Shakulute I play on "The River" original composition (under LISTEN) was crafted by Monty H. Levenson at Tai Hei Shakuhachi:
"This headjoint for the silver flute is a completely new concept in woodwinds developed by Tai Hei Shakuhachi. It replaces the side-blown headjoint of the western transverse flute with that of an end-blown shakuhachi headjoint to create an innovative new sound and style of music."
"The only way we will know anything like Eden on Earth is if we protect
what is left and foster stewardship and inspiration for nature's return
to areas from whence she has been banished." ~Mark Larsen
