ORNITHOLOGY (Basta Records 2008)
On his latest album, Geert is searching for the ‘whistlability’ of several music styles. Result is a musical journey through a much wider variety of styles, from jazz to klezmer to classic to pop. Several pieces were composed especially for Chatrou’s virtuoso whistling by well known Dutch composers. The second disc contains a short animation by Liza Skvorcova as well as a documentary by Jasper ten Berge. Producer: Jakob Klaasse, cover design: Aleksey Budovski, artwork: Peter Allard. Order
