instrument building / sound art


installation dates: June 21-28, 2015
materials: 4-5 subwoofers (8"-12"), slidewhistles, wood

Subwhistle is a sound installation that uses low frequency sound to play slide whistles. The air forced out of each of 4 subwoofers is connected to a slide whistle, directing it into the mouth piece. It oscillates at the frequency of the the speaker, usually between 10 and 30 hertz.

All the sound we hear in this video is generated acoustically from the slide whistles. Low rumblings of the subwoofers can occasionally be heard.
