Monk’s Dream

Those of you who have been checking Birdhouse for a long time may remember Rinchen, one of my oldest friends, who used to comment here. Two years ago he sold everything he owned – including his amazing record collection – and moved into a Buddhist monastery for three years of almost total silent meditation. At intervals he’s able to take time out to communicate with friend and family, so a while back I wrote him asking what music ran through a monk’s mind, hoping to run it on Stuck Between Stations. A few days ago received a beautiful perambulation on Sun Ra, John Cage, Sly, Jorge Ben and more.
