CyberWhistle

The CyberWhistle is a complete instrument consisting of a windcontroller based around the traditional penny whistle, and computer based software synthesis. The main motivation was to create an instrument which could naturally capture the partial covering of tone holes in whistles and other instruments, and make use of this musically. Continuous variation of coverage occurs unavoidably when moving between notes. Players also control coverage while a note is sustained to generate a variety of effects, the most obvious of which is pitch bending, but also including subtle variations of timbre. This controlled coverage is called shading.
