Susan Rawcliffe Clay Necklace Ocarina

150.00

"These necklace ocarinas have 4 holes on top for the first two fingers, & 2 bottom thumb holes. Put your lips around the tiny slot & blow; don't cover the square hole: it makes the sound. For balance, use the ring & little fingers around the cord hole.

Blow hard for loud & high sounds; blow softly for soft & lower sounds. Blow hard to soft and the sound will die away. Roll your fingers on & off each hole while blowing or try tongue & mouth sounds: sharp TTTs, soft GGGs or trilling motor boat sounds. Open each hole one by one, two by two. Make up songs & rhythm patterns. Sing & play simultaneously!

Take your ocarina everywhere, & have fun!" - Susan Rawcliffe

Susan Rawcliffe is an explorer of primeval soundscapes. She is a master flute maker, player and researcher as well as a master didjeridu player. Her work evolves through a circular process of making acoustical copies of ancient and contemporary specimens, learning to play them, and investing new insights into the creation of more instruments to then learn to play. She delights in exotic and potent sounds, whether as a performer, a creator of musical instruments and sculptures or a researcher into ancient flutes and their music.
