Experimental Instruments: Flute & Non-Flute

      These instruments are designed to explore the parameters of music and sound. Size, shape, materials and the manner in which the instrument is played all come together to create the form.       

      Different ways to control and create sound provided the inspiration. Each instrument is an evolution with elements added and taken away. They are experimental and are designed to invite further tinkering. New ideas may take the instruments in unexpected directions.

      What if the guitar didn't exist, and we had to invent it. What would it look like? Would we pluck it, bow it, slide the tuning, or use our fingers?

      As you imagine the music these instruments make, perhaps you'll also imagine other unique instruments and sounds.
