This large collection of solo flute songs was performed on a total of 32 different Native American-style flutes which I have been playing and collecting since March 2007. Nearly half of the songs herein are based on improvisations I'd captured on video and then posted on my YouTube channel and represent either direct re-creations or further developments of those. Others are drawn from my vast flute tune repository and are seeing their debut. As if that weren't enough, still more melodies simply appeared out of the ether as I was compiling the pieces I wished to include. Ah well, what can I say? The tunes just never stop coming!
With their immense expressive possibilities wrapped up in such a soulful voice, Native American-style flutes have become my little wooden bridge that spans the gap between a feverish desire for musical expression and the sounds you can experience here. That they can do this so completely and so beautifully without additional accompaniment is the essence of elegant simplicity, indeed!
Note: A CD version of this release will be available in September 2011. In the meantime (or if you just prefer digital files), you can download & burn all the tracks to 2 CD-R's.
CD 1: Tracks 01-21 (68:53)
CD 2: Tracks 22-42 (66:30)
Each of these pieces was born out of improvisations done in a variety of locales:
* a tunnel in Chuncheon, South Korea
# an apartment in Chuncheon, South Korea
an apartment in Wonju, South Korea
+ an Earth-ship in Tres Piedras, New Mexico, USA
= in a tunnel in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA
my mother's home in Freedom Township, Ohio, USA
