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.

Today is International Nose Flute Day!!

To the readers of this blog: I've been away from for a long time. In April, I had to face a lack of new info deserving publication and at the same time, I had to focus on the completion of my work for an art exhibition. Then I got longly sick. Finally I'm back, here, but the posting rhythm may slow a bit down, from now on. Thank you for your loyalty, and particularly to those of you who enquired about my "disappearance"


Today is the 2nd INFD - International Nose Flute Day. The 14th of June was chosen last year as an anniversary of the registration of William Carter's Nasalette patent. Have you planned something specific? Are you going to celebrate this day?


Here are some pictures of the exhibition « En Quête de l'Ange » ("In the Quest for the Angel"), set in Nancy, Lorraine, France, for which I built 3 composed pieces. One of those photographic compositions is called « Le Souffle des Anges »("The Angels' Breath") and is totally devoted to nose flute playing.

This collective exhibition - with great names! : Ernest Pignon-Ernest, Eric Poitevin, Dominique Petitgand ... — encounters a good success: 5,000 visitors so far, and in just more than a month. If you happen to pass by Nancy, pay us a visit!

En Quête de l'Ange
May 4 to August 4 — (Wednesday to Sunday - 10AM to 6PM)
