This blog is dedicated to the sublime instruments called nose flutes and which produce the most divine sound ever. We have chosen to discard all the native models from S. Pacific and Asia, for they need fingering to be played. We'll concentrate on "buccal cavity driven" nose flutes : the well patented and trademarked metal or plastic ones, plus, by a condemnable indulgence, some wooden craft or home-made productions.

Beautiful drawings by Maikel Mei

Maikel Mei is an inexhaustible source of marvels for the blog... After he shared with us pictures of his silver nose flute and of his bondage installation with an improved plastic instrument, he just sent us a series of beautiful drawings he made almost twenty years ago.

What makes them beautiful is the free and quick hand who drew them, trying (and succeeding) to catch the basic structure of our "beloved instrument", with the clean lines of a simple pen.

« My aim is to capture the essence, calligraphy-like: 1 take and that's it. ».

Just click on the images to enlarge :

Maikel Mei drew also several complex compositions, involving many nose flutes, more or less intricated, with a climax reached in « Voodoo Child » (made in 1993 too), an hypnotic ink drawing with psychedelic patterns. Wah!

« The ink drawing was inspired by and made in 1 go while listening to Jimi Hendrix's version of Voodoo Child at the Los Angeles Forum in 1969. »
