Ultrasonic Death Whistle

Explore the dark sounds of Aztec Death Whistles

Ultrasonic Death Whistle (UDW) was designed as an introduction to our powerful MNDALA Sound Sculpture Engine. The combination of these two open the door for unparalleled creative possibilities with our leading-edge ultrasonic quality sampling.

Performed by our Founder - Composer & Multi-instrumentalist Brian D’Oliveira, UDW offers a window into our collection of rare pre-Columbian death whistles that were found during our research and development. Some of them were even handcrafted in our studio to expand creative sound possibilities, and many of these death whistles were featured in the production of multiple Award Winning AAA Video Game soundtracks.

UDW’s video-game audio inspired interactive scene, allows for non-linear multidimensional control and patch creation for intuitive yet seamless musical expression.

Each Death Whistle is named to represent their characters. Having been sculpted by hand, their sounds are recognizably unique, each sample map representing a different Death Whistle.

All demos created with UDW with some elements from Orakle, NO external sounds or processing.
