Many ocarinas: NECKLACE, Whiffle, and sculptural...

Each necklace ocarina is individually made as a small art piece. Take it wherever you go: parties, hikes, or strolls. Each ocarina plays a chromatic 9th, and many wonderful folk melodies can be played. On your travels, don't forget to talk to the birds!

Many ocarinas can be found throughout this site: e.g. on the pages titled Ocarina pot, Multi-performer, Anatomical, & Musical Food. Herein are necklace ocarinas, iron red whiffles, and two sculptural ocarinas.

This pair of Whiffle Ocarinas was designed to play together; they have many possible variations in the sounds and are relatively easy to play. In the whiffle video, this was the first time Cheryl had played one, although she had had previous experience with flutes.
