In 2008, a flute was discovered in the Hohle Fels cave in Germany that was thought to represent the earliest known musical instrument.

The flute is made out of a vulture's wing bone perforated with five finger holes. Carbon dating suggests that the instrument was made approximately 35,000 years ago. Several similar Paleolithic flutes have also been found in this region.

These flutes are therefore 'Prehistoric', meaning that they were made before the advent of writing. This means that music has been with since the dawn of civilization.

The fascinating things is that the position of the holes on the Hohle Fels flute corresponds with the pentatonic scale.

This discovery means that humans have had the pentatonic scale for longer than they have had the writing, communal living, and agriculture. This made me think about how important pentatonics must be to us as humans.

The mysterious, beautiful and powerful sound of this scale has been resonating deep within our souls all throughout the ages. Eastern, African and Indian Classical music's use of modes and pentatonics is well established. Nowadays pentatonics are used across all musical styles. Coltrane's embrace of Eastern music was based upon the spirituality and freedoms he could achieve through modal and pentatonic explorations.

My Prehistoric compositions attempt to boil music down to its core. This core that resonates deep within us, and which has been resonating within us since the dawn of Man.
