Allegro's Nature's Rhythms: Bamboo Forest provides the listener with the unique audio experience of being outside. The soft, subtle chirping of indigenous birds serves as the backbone to each of the recording's three distinct movements. "Forest Harmony" imagines a late morning nap among the myriad of complex lives that make their homes on the forest floor, while "Peaceful Winds" gently circulates allergens from the surrounding fields and bogs. "Bamboo Winds" finds the dark curtain of night closing around the listener, who has now relaxed right through the day, leaving behind a long, violent wake of missed opportunity and personal failure.
