Richard Noll Plays Alto And Tenor Wooden Recorders On His Debut Album
08.08.2018 Nature is a primary inspiration for the music of musician Richard Noll, and those influences can be heard on his debut album, Peaceful Being. "Most of my early music came to me as I sat with my wooden recorder in the mountains or along the rivers and streams of Northern New Mexico, " says Noll, one of the few recording artists who primarily plays recorder. "Sometimes I was next to a gurgling stream or a waterfall or a lake, other times on top of a mesa with the vast sky, perhaps watching the clouds and the weather change, waiting for a sunrise or a sunset, listening to the birds, following the flight of a hawk, meditating, at peace with myself and my surroundings. When a new melody came to me, I played it, over and over, so that I would remember it later at home. I was responding to the natural world around me, and I was communicating back, offering my flute song as a tribute or a prayer." read more
