I was searching for videos of recorder music last night and came upon a video by the Flanders Recorder Quartet with new instruments:

embasure

Do they empty the instruments themselves, I wonder, or let someone else do it for them? One way eases the nerves, the other preserves accuracy in performing.

(While you are at it, check out their other videos for some of the world's finest recorder music.)

That was great! When I first read your note, I couldn't imagine what they would need to empty out of their instruments and then I though, maybe spit? Eewww! So ya got me...good one!

it occurred to me later that perhaps they don't empty the instruments completely. Perhaps they merely engage in precision imbibing, then play.

If they were holding them up instead of down they'd look like the lot at my local...

Serious, skilled musicians. Why didn't they leave some liquid in there and make a xylophone, though?

.....reminds me of last Christmas with friends.

After dinner, we had crackers [the kind you pull] with a music score of 'Jingle Bells' and some single note whistles.

There were 10 whistles but only 6 of us, so some of us had to blow 2 whistles.

It was hilarious!!

Thanks for the new link, Suibhne. A haunting arrangement, don't you think?

"Sweet, Lord, what a sound!!!" Is that why they wrote the words

Yo ho ho
hee hee hee
little brown jug,
how I love thee?

It's okay to have the jug, just so you don't put any moonshine in it. That stuff's bad for you.

I've tried "bottle band" before, folks, and, believe me, that is a helluva lot harder than it looks!

Kudos to those excellent (and patient) musicians!

Certainly different but I'm not sure I could sit through a whole evening of it.

I think the New Rope String Band do something similar.

A haunting arrangement, don't you think?

Absolutely, though maybe not quite so haunting as the impromptu performance we did in the very resonant cellars of Belsay Hall in Northumberland several years back - four us, the family band in fact, Rachel & I with my son & daughter, drinking bottles of water to quench our thirsts and hooting merrily into the echoing ambience. Some punters thought it was some sort of art installation (they get used to that on Tyneside) and one couple thought we were doing it to commune with the ghosts of the place!

" I'm not sure I could sit through a whole evening of it."

Have no fear. No doubt it was a one-off, novelty piece.

Suibhne, thanks for the story about your family band.
