This little disaster produces single nasty high pitched tone, which only me and my son seem to like in our entire family. Soon I realized, that this one note torturing is not all this catcall is capable of. So I started to "practise" and used it to produce quite wide palette of sounds - squeels, screams and creaks, which reminded me of various animals - so you can find seagulls, pigs, starling, cat, peacock and also unbelievable chicken patches inside.

There also few patches reminiscent of broken, detuned, defective trumpets, cello, pad, strings, a bass patch, dandelion trumpet one and even a funeral band trying to get it right (Brokestra) ! Besides this experimental approach I soon found out, that in some two octave range, vuvuzela can sound like sort of an oriental instrument to my ears. I have adapted the idea of some unusual, African/Arabian whistle/pipe. And the name ? In high octaves it sounds just like buzzing of a gnat, a LOT of gnats, who have lost their... shepherd... or vice versa ?

KONTAKT 5 full version required. (in KONTAKT PLAYER limited sessions of 15 minutes are possible)
