My favorite instrument...
The WILLOW FLUTE
...is A stick !!!
WILLOW SOUND 5 year manifesto:
This tiny little instrument - a bark flute with no finger holes carries a big message - both spiritually, physically and politically...
I learned to play the instrument ( Folk instrument of Norway ) in my teens, and it has been with me ever since as part of my musical, cultural and personal identity
Over the next 5 years I will be going back to my willow roots - exploring ALL imaginable aspects of this flute - it's history, it's acoustic properties, it's use, it's international relatives, it's music, it's raw material (willow, birch, metal, PVC!) - in short : it's possibilities. And I will record and play with all kinds of musical colleagues , in order to expose this diminutive pipe to relationships it has never experienced before - hopefully giving listeners something new and exciting, and
In the next few months, I'll be listing new tracks,
articles etc on a website dedicated to the music and mysteries of the willow flute ... Folow me on the journey !
