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.

Andrew Gruswitz, aka Andy Joe, is a polyinstrumentist musician from New Jersey. He published on iCompositions several music pieces gathered under the title Crazy Bumpkin, and amongst which the two first are called Nose flute Dance and Nose Flute Circus
« My nose flute is the kind that you can get for 99 cents at a lot of music stores. You often find them by the slide whistles, jews harps, and other cheap stuff. You blow into it though your nose and shape your mouth the adjust the pitch, like you said. The pitch is difficult to control as well as it sounds like I can on these songs. How did I do it? Well, a lot of takes and a lot of cut and paste. Enjoy, and please do rate my other songs if you get a chance. »
Nose Flute Dance is a kind of Mariachi music piece, including a guitar, a slapping e-bass, an harmonica, shakers, some vinyl noises and nose flute. It has a funny ending...
Nose flute Circus is a short funny piece played with guitar, nose flute and bass drum, a kind of Zorba's Dance.
