Bamboo, Silk and Stone is a collaborative work between Barry Truax, who realized the tape part, and Randy Raine-Reusch who performed the source material for the tape (on the Balinese suling gambuh, the Chinese guzheng, the Korean hun or ocarina, gongs and tam-tam) and who composed the live accompaniment which he plays on the first three of those instruments. The tape part is designed to preserve and amplify typical improvisational gestures used by the performer, sometimes stretching them in time to discover their inner complexity. In Chinese philosophy, bamboo, silk and stone are regarded as three natural elements of the world.
