There is a village in East-Central Poland called Gwizdały. In Polish its name means whistles (from gwizdać, to whistle). The village's primary school is home to museum of whistles, Muzeum Gwizdka, which houses a few thousand different examples of whistles, mainly clay whistles in the shape of birds.

In 2012 Arturas Bumšteinas visited the museum and recorded a large selection of various clay whistles there, from these recordings he later prepared various compositions and installation pieces.
The first was a concert and a sound installation in public space ,Gwizdały, commissioned by Varsovian curators Joanna Turek from Galeria A19 Marymont and Andrzej Załęski from Centrum Sztuki Współczesnej Ujazdowski.
The second was an improvised piece titled Quiet Cue, which was premiered at Berlin's experimental music venue of the same name.
The third realisation based on the recordings was a sound installation in a public park in the city of Vilnius titled Čirrrrrrrrr.
The fourth variation on the collection of whistle recordings manifested itself as a composition for piano and tape titled Avis Polonus.
The fifth, and current version, titled Walk Through is an 8-channel sound installation created specially for the TONSPUR_passage in the MuseumsQuartier, curated by Georg Weckwerth.
