Instruments & Sounds

 

With a wide range of traditional flutes I explore a huge range of timbres and textures, with the ability to create harmonic layers as well as play lead melodies. Examples of the range of sounds I can achieve with my assorted flutes are below:

 

QUENA

Keyless bamboo or wooden flute with a soprano range. Mauricio has developed a system for playing these flutes as fully chromatic  instruments.

SIKUS

Similar to panpipes, with a more breathy sound, made from South American bamboo cane also chromatic.

 

GAITAS

Traditional with a mouthpiece made from beeswax & charcol and a body of cactus wood, with a very percusiive sounds used primarily for rhythm parts.

MOZEÑOS

Highly percusiive aerophones duct flutes, I use the bass mozeños that carry deep bass lines with a lot of low end.
