Perry Yung: Making Workshop at Zen Center of NYC

Everyone,

Here's a short video that we made of the workshop Perry gave at ZCNYC on Feb 6, 2010 (a date casually known in the past as a kind of impromptu International Shakuhachi Day/Playdate).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Upc1oheis4g

It'll be clear that it's not a 'how-to' video. The intention was to convey the spirit of the workshop and the day. As I did the shooting, any lack of quality in the framing, etc is all me. Much gratitude to my friend Andrew Cahill for cutting it, a fine and generous professional editor. Look forward to hearing people's thoughts.

Thanks Ken! I've been appreciating watching your vids for some time. Incidentally, what do you edit with?

I've used Adobe Premiere, PowerDirector and a handful of others but they are sometimes overkill for the very basic stuff I usually do. Windows Movie Maker is often enough for me.

Thanks for the info. I'm making a decision about which editing language to learn for upcoming shakuhachi documentation. This was edited on Final Cut Pro. Definitely overkill for this short piece.

Thank you so much Kohl. Very well done.I have always managed to miss Perry's workshops, but having taken private making lessons with him really wanted to have the group experience. You captured Perry's generous and kind spirit of teaching perfectly.Please keep up the good work.

Thanks Ken, I was just at Mt. Tamalpais for a wedding. A few days earlier and I could've caught your Mukyoku workshop!

Thanks Mark, it's always a pleasure to be working along side you! Hope my mother-in-law's Bánh mě sandwich wasn't too spicy for you last time smile

namaste, Perry

Thanks for the kind words. Much obliged. I intended this as a fledgling first attempt of many such media explorations. I think the shakuhachi making/playing process is quite interesting on film. I also like to hear the sound of honkyoku juxtaposed with the 'workshop' sounds of drilling etc. Anyway...

I'm practicing a technique right now to help loosen my embouchure that is officially referred to as the "Homer D'OH!"

I see two sandwiches in that picture. Care to share?

The Bahn Mi is on me the next time we meet!

Jim have you never had a Vietnamese Bahn mi sandwich? It's influenced from the French. Crispy baguette, Vietnamese pork sausage, pate, shredded pickled carrots and daikon, dry peppers, cilantrio, scallions, fish sauce and some secret ingredients. I believe you live near some of the best Vietnamese food in America. Take a drive to Little Saigon in Orange county!
