5 composers + free food and some alcohol
We wanted to capture the organic sound of a group whistling… so we gathered an elite force of professional composers. Fed them delicious Thai food, some wine, and then got to recording!
Whistlers: Joe Basile, Brandon Chapman, Dustin Painter, Alex Davis, Jonathan Churchill

Recording: Dan Schneider

John Walker's Performance Hall
A little-known gem in the Piedmont area of North Carolina, John Walker is a musician and software engineer who has a pristine performance hall in his home. He graciously opened his home up for the recording session.

Legato Styles

"Normal" legato, like a smooth slur and "Emo" legato, which is more immediate and emphasized

Air Control

Dial in the exact amount of wind/air noise you want! Take it ALL out and the instrument sounds like an eerie sine wave

Perfect silliness

Nothing says "ironic hipster goofball" better than an ensemble of 5 whistlers singing in unison!


The instrument responds flexibly and dynamically via CC or Velocity control. Perfect for MPE Control!

Flexible Control

Choose your keyswitches! Choose your CCs. We don't choose them for you… since everyone has a unique setup
