APO Whistles by Bettina Pozzo Di Borgo
by Harry / February 13, 2013
While at ECAL as a student in the Mas Luxe program, Bettina Pozzo Di Borgo created three pink gold and wood whistles reproducing the singing of birds from the Vallée de Joux, hometown of Swiss watchmaker Audemars Piguet.

The three chosen birds were the Linnet and the Hazel Grouse, two rare and distinctive birds of the Vallée, and the Robin, "eternal inhabitant of the trees." says Pozzo Di Borgo.

"Walking around in these forests that I grew up in, what makes me most attached to them is their melody. Nature never sleeps, silence doesn't exist, but true interior peacefulness can be found elsewhere."

"By just lending ones' ear, a spectator who is willing to listen absorbs all the surrounding sounds, thus creating his or her own symphony of the forest."

"With these whistles, not only can you communicate with birds, but anyone anywhere around the world can be transported to this magical place thanks to the reproduction of that instrumental composition."

"For one instant, the birds sing, the music starts to play, a memory creates a smile, the mind wanders in the woods, everything stops, perchance to dream." More at Bettina Pozzo Di Borgo.
