If you play the nose flute, you probably met someone one day who told you that you looked like Hannibal Lecter with such a device on your nose. Indeed, the Silent of the Lambs hero should be a kind of iconic model for any noseflutist.
IanReentrant, ukulelist and Phil Doleman's music partner in The Re-entrants, wanted to mock at his friend who recently bought a Bocarina™ and just published a video with it. On that purpose, he made the following video (and also this other one:) :
Great idea! Yes, I had the same :) [following the idea we had here] Pfff! Once again, the rug was pulled from under my feet, like with the "Noseless nose flute"! I had ordered a Hannibal Lecter's mask some weeks ago (there are witnesses!) but had no time yet to make a video with it. I bow down, Ian, you were the first.
The fact is that the mask is a very easy and comfortable nose flute holder, yet very elegant, and it helps much the communication with children.
