Exposé Online - Peter Thelen

This is a forest that a listener can easily get lost within, in fact one where a listener will want to get lost in pure introspective meditation, with the breath of life flowing through various flutes of the world while a backdrop of gentle synths and tuned percussion guides the listener through the inward spiral journey to sacred worlds where time seems to stand still, and though it seems to be over all too soon

Solénopole Radio, France - Olivier Lehoux

Primordial Forest is a unique musical experience, a fascinating journey into the heart of consciousness and nature. [Peter and Ivar] invite everyone to lose themselves in the mysteries of music and explore unknown sonic territory."

World Flute Society, Executive Director - Dr. Kathleen Joyce-Grendahl

It is my opinion that Peter Phippen is the most overlooked flutist in the industry. He is not only a gifted world flutist, but he is a true artist. Each musical note is a color on the palette and each phrase a soulful brush stroke, creating a musical work of art to be cherished and taken into the soul like a warm drink of musical sustenance. Phippen's music comes from his heart, and he has much to say to the world and many gifts to reveal. There are many people in the world who play world flutes, but there are few who are soulful, truly ambient artists like Peter Phippen

Few flutists bring as much warmth and richness to a single tone as Peter Phippen does. His playing is earthy, improvised and impressionistic, offering listeners a beautifully serene atmosphere for meditation and reflection.

Phippen's tune, Lascaux is a shaman's dream.

New Age Retailer, Music News and Reviews

A rare find for lovers of flute music.

Watertown Daily Times, New York - David P. Demar, Jr.

Words like 'ethereal' and 'superb' work well on his list of critical superlatives.

Victory Acoustic Magazine

Phippen's flute expresses reverence, sorrow, joy and love
with soft haunting clarity.

Belarus Music Reviewer, Minsk Belarus - Serge Kozlovsky

Peter Phippen is a heaven-born flutist. His flutes are so precise in reproducing the finest nuances of human emotions


Amon Olorin Flutes - Ken Light

Peter is not only a fine musician, but has developed a working understanding of the North American flute tradition that in my opinion qualifies him as one of a very few authorities on the subject. Peter's enthusiasm for everything he does complements his high level of skill as a musician as well as his many contributions to the native flute community. Peter is a good friend, colleague, and I am happy to give him my highest recommendation.

All Music, - Steve Huey

Phippen’s flutes are melodic and passionate yet never flashy, and enhance the peaceful moods of the compositions.

Skyline Studio, - Ivar Lunder, Jr.

Mr. Phippen is a consummate artist and gifted performer of the Native American/World flutes, and electric bass guitar. His work is of the highest caliber.
