Subj: RE: [kl] "pan flute" articulation

Well, the fact is that I *don't* know (but nobody who *does* has responded
yet). But I've seen the instrument you're talking about and I don't see any
reason why you *couldn't* articulate with your tongue. How articulation is
produced in whatever traditional style exists, I have no idea.
