A collection of Seagull bones, found in the Baja California peninsula, are carved and made into whistles. The resulting instruments are attached to a wall and connected to an air compressor using rubber hoses. A foot pedal release valve allows air to blow the whistles. The resulting sound (music) mixes man's earliest musical instrument with sounds of contemporary technology.
