In preparation for Le Concert de l’Hostel Dieu’s evening concert, this workshop, open to all, will teach you how to build harmonic flutes. The harmonic flutes will be constructed on the same model as a suling - a Bali ring flute. The flutes will be painted, decorated and of course played! There are two factors that affect a fine suling’s tone: fingering position and speed of the airflow blown by the mouth. Franck- Emmanuel Comte and Patrick Rudant from Le Concert de l’Hostel-Dieu will lead the workshop, experimenting with the making of an instrument to show how it works and how to operate it.
