Whistle Hole - Rustic Tin Whistle Humming

"Whistle Hole - Rustic Tin Whistle Humming" [v1.0]

The idea of this sound appealed to me for the first time when recording an experimental soundtrack for a short film - "The Journey" (soundtrack nominated to the "Best Soundtrack Album 2013" award by Screen Australia/APRA - but better luck next time...) - basically humming/singing into the tin whistle while playing it.

Chaotic interference of air and sound waves is always bringing fresh results - no two takes are identical! This library captures that sonic experience: fragile, imperfect yet persistently sustained sound!

Haunting yet border-lining with comical. Industrial yet spiritual. Ugly yet beautiful.

Left hand: Tin whistle in 'c' "hummed into" an octave below
Right hand: Another tin whistle in 'c' plus unison humming

The instrument consists of two patches:

* polyphonic
* legato utilising SIPS Legato Script

Happy blowing/humming!

Developed in Kontakt 5.4.3 so you'll need this version or above to use this library. Library will only load in 'demo' mode in the free Kontakt Player.

PS: If you are not afraid of experimental, independent cinematography and kinds of music it attracts, you can still purchase "The Journey" soundtrack on pmn.selz.com ;)
