The flute's universal appeal matches few other wind instruments, as this episode of New Sounds illustrates. Its application is often based on natural elements, such as Antonio Zepeda’s Mariposa de Obsidiana, or Stephan Micus’s Thirteen Eagles, an austere and ecstatic meditation on both the topography and idea of the desert. Bolivian orchestra Arawi blends flutes with whistles, strings, percussion, and bells in Imaraycu, from its New Albion CD The Doctrine of Cycles. And Japanese drum masters Kodo weave in some wildly mysterious flute sounds in Ibuki.
