"T Flutes are easy to play. Hang one around your neck; turn the backs of your hands together; place the long cylinder's open ends between index & middle fingers. Use your thumbs to open & close each bog hole. Put your mouth around the open middle tube; blow. Slowly blow harder & harder, then softer & softer; the pitch will jump higher then lower. Roll the thumbs off & on the open ends while blowing harder & softer. Tongue shar TT & GG sounds, trill motorboat sounds; sing while blowing;  play with the birds or in a salsa band. Mostly, 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.
