As most of you know, the release date was postponed until February 2009. So we’ll add an extra song or two to make up for it. Plus Randy is working on some 5.1 surround mixes for it.
Here are a couple of interesting flutes that have found their way onto the new album and one that may still.
The top flute is a lovely Coyote Oldman flute in A flat. We bought him for the new album, but he is still patiently waiting.
The middle flute is an odd instrument I stumbled across during a trip to New Mexico. (Note the skulls on it). It’s actually an earthy-sounding flute in the key of C which lended a very dusty sound to a southwestern flavored song. The bottom image shows a very sweet ocarina which was brought to me by a friend from China. It added a very haunting sound to a slow piano song. It has an almost human-voice quality.
