HOWLERS/DEATH WHISTLES: CHAMBER-DUCT FLUTES
Small sculptural chamber-duct howlers: This ancient sound was probably used to call in prey, to terrify enemies, & in death ceremonies.
A drawing of one type of internal construction of a chamber-duct/howler is on the research page. A recording of one of my howlers is on this page.
The two greenish vegetative chamber-duct howlers have been sold, & the white skull is unavailable. Each howler has 3 interconnected volumes inside.
Dark Skull 3"H X 2.5"W X 3"D
Small sculptural howler: blow harder & softer through the open tube on top. Roll your hand over the large opening on the bottom of the piece. Try talking, singing, barking, tonguing Ts & Gs while playing. Can you buzz your lips like a trumpet into the open tube? While singing...?
