For my artist instrument, I wanted to design something a bit different than the normal rubber band string instrument. I found myself really inspired by instruments like the ocarina and the whistle, and I wanted to create a wind instrument that was both quiet and soft like the wind yet held different pitches with each blow tube. Through the use of the 3D model maker, I was able to design this whistle. This whistle is unlike the rest as the sound it produces is faint and one needs to listen closely and concentrate to clearly make out the pitches. It is representative of the small things we fail to hear or see in life as we are surrounded by a fast life and loud noises.
