  • Need Whistler! Urgent!

    Need very quickly a good whistler to record a 10 sec melody, will pay, must record it and send me AIF.

    Would there be by any chance a good whistle sample lib?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Whistler?

    You mean his mother?

    yeah, I've got a copy.

  • No, no, now \\I realize what you mean!

    you mean that excellent b-movie series made in the 40s.

    The Whistler. Directed by William Castle etc. Voice of the Whistler. The Whistler Returns, etc.. O.K. i can get you a copy of one of those, but it won't be cheap.

  • by the way, the Whistler theme was, as I remember it (please correct me if you can) :

    g-c-d-g-eflat-c-aflat-c-d-g

  • i just realized that's wrong, but don't have a copy of the first film immediately available to check it. Can anyone remember the correct theme?

  • Em, you drunk?

  • No, it's just that very few people know of those films today. And the theme was whistled, with the melody I noted, which was what made me think of it.

    William, it's great to have you back on the forum. I, for one, really missed you. [:D]

  • Ok William, but I just didn't want this thread to be TOO distracted by other topics, since I was desperately looking for a whistler to be used in a commercial. Nothing personal, hope you understand.

  • one of my production partner whistles quite well, I would even say compared to what I can whistle he is a virtuoso

    I PM'd you his email adress

    .

  • Thanks! Got it! [:D]

  • Bill, my friend,

    How could you forget that ultra cult film classic....'Whistler meets Lassie.'

    Again.

    And again.

    And again........

  • Trivial:

    What classical composer used a person whistling in his symphony?

    See if you get that!

    No idea, but here is another solo instrument I miss every day in the VSL library, "Old School Hand Farting"

  • That's funny, but what about that Sam Kinison? [[[:D]]] [[[:D]]] [[[:D]]]

    Check out also Cage 4'33'', I thought the second mov dragged a bit...
