Bird Water Whistle

5 stars
[OW-biwa]
Description

Fabulous-sounding water whistle. Pour a little water down the mouthpiece and blow. The sound is astonishingly bird-like and needs no skill at all!

 

Click the trumpet icon below to listen to an amazing audio clip "Disappearing World" below by 9 year old Erin Bryant. Erin directed the whole thing and played both keyboard themes and nearly all of the parts including the bird whistles and rain stick and frog twirler. The piece starts as an idyll, but then portrays the threat to the environment (some ambient forest noises used as part of background and a chainsaw sample to represent the ongoing destruction....). Brilliant!!
