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.

The Slow Agony of the Kartofflöte

We were asked by some nosy person to show our potato nose flute after some days. Here is the answer, in between a Jivaro shrunken head and a necrophile sextoy.
(No need to say it plays not so well now...)


  1. Ashes to ashes potato to dust
    the sparkling and shining all covered with rust
    Kartofflöte's message all in its decay
    a plant may be eaten - a nose flute will stay

    Frohe Ostern wünscht Nosymusic

  2. PS:
    I see no agony in the instrument -
    would have chosen another headline like
    "the transformation of the kartofflöte"
    changing appearances - art in transformation
    La pomme de taire

    will you bury/plant it? Sell to a museum (taking bids already?)? Call the Kammerjäger?

  3. You say you cannot see no agony because you are not here, and cannot hear the heartrending little screams it produces!
