The Ice Age Flute is made out of bamboo by Erik the Flutemaker. It is blown by holding it vertically, pressing the notch (the V shaped opening) softly against your lips and blowing with a smile. It requires some patience and practice to get the hang of it. 

It has four top fingerholes and a thumbhole. It is tuned to itself, which means that the instrument will play in tune when playing alone, but when playing with for example a piano player you could be a tad flat or sharp.

How to play this flute?

  • Put your lips against the notch and blow across the V-shape
  • This requires some practice and patience
  • The flute is held vertically
  • There are four fingerholes on top, and a thumbhole on the back
  • Cover the holes with the pad of the fingers, not the fingertips

The musical possibilities

  • This flute plays easily the Major scale and in the Minor scale.
  • It is also possible to play in other keys and modes.
  • This would require you to cover half holes more often.
  • The flute has a reach of approximately 2 octaves.
