Space Twang Flute: Marstiki

Here's the recording session for one from the 2014 album, Martian Archaeology.

The flute here is an interesting pentatonic creature voiced with a I III IV V bVII scale -- mixolydian pentatonic ( or mixotonic, I like to call it). It was built by flute-maker extraordinaire David Smith (DAS).
