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.

A new cardboard nose flute

Shuenping Chiou, our taiwanese friend and amateur nose flute builder, has just released a new cardboard nose flute template. It has a very nice and simple design (simple to build!) and might be printed "for real" and commercialized.

Chiou (YW) has also tested a duct tape version, which offers a better solidity (here, beside his "cat paw" home made flute.

Message from the CRAFAN

An hilarious video produced by Profglukoz. It is in French, so I have to sum up the topic for you:
This video is supposed to be a message from the CRAFAN (Comité Révolutionnaire Anti-Flûte à Nez = Revolutionary Committee Against Nose flutes) and the "anonymous" masked protagonist claims he has taken my black cat Patafix as an hostage. The CRAFAN demands any nose flute activity to be stopped right now (playing, building, modifying, etc.), otherwise, Patafix will be sold to the best-offering company to be transformed in... lasagna.

Note that Profglukoz calls our beloved instruments "tympanum massive destruction weapon"

It's a french speaking (with southern accent:) video, but the images are funny terrible and understandable.
