World champion whistler Geert Chatrou does it again

Filed under: Music by Orangemaster @ 8:26 am

Last Monday competition whistler Geert Chatrou from Mierlo, Noord-Brabant, was crowned the world champion of whistling in Tokyo for the third time. He first held the title in 2004. Chatrou performs regularly and has his second CD out. Many whistlers make whistling their job while Chatrou prefers to work as an orderly.

Enjoy him whistling ‘Queen of the Night’ (with that wonderful high note) taken from Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute) opera.

Hague tower still singing

Filed under: Architecture,Weird by Orangemaster @ 10:38 am

After reporting about it back in July, Het Strijkijzer tower in The Hague is still whistling loudly and irritating the neighbourhood. The building corporation said it would be fixed when they finished the roof in September, but it sounds like they’re dead wrong.

I’m sorry, but however is responsible for this must be deaf and dumb.
