Cresta Kruger is an electric/distortion flute player who uses layers of effects to achieve soundscapes and textures that make it hard to believe it is a flute generating the sounds. Hypnotic and soulful, her playing can transport you from the realm of celestial angels to the grit and dirty beats of New York. "Not every songs needs a pretty flute part, so I found a way to wail like an electric guitar or add padding like a keyboard, but on my instrument, the flute." http://youtu.be/9zBxQ1l-Zhk
