Taken from the Liner Notes:

Gusty Winds May Exist is a duo that began with a free improvisation on a mountain in New Mexico, at the Advanced Deep Listening Retreat led by composer Pauline Oliveros. Nancy Beckman brings experience in the meditative solo tradition of shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute) as well as more extroverted techniques of intuitive improvisation. Recorder player Tom Bickley brings experience performing early European music and new music using extended techniques. The music created by Gusty Winds May Exist places these traditions in the same time and space and explores the sonic world that results.
