An Evening with Buster @ The Frazier Museum – 4/17 and 18

A special screening of Buster Keaton’s hilarious epic “The General” with live original soundtrack performed by The Tamerlane Ensemble (Mick Sullivan, Rob Collier, Chris Rodahaffer and Joey Thieman).

Two Nights – Thursday April 17th and Friday April 18th
Frazier History Museum
7-9pm Doors at 6.


The Tamerlane Ensemble is a continuation of the Tamerlane Trio, which viewers may be familiar with from An Evening with Poe. This performance is an instrumental set in which we’ll play an assortment of at least 9 different instruments – including banjo, mandolin, electric guitar, trumpet, and accordion. We tried to write new material that compliments each scene as well as the overall flow of the film.


The soundtrack will be a collection of a few melodies from the time period that are book-ended by original sounds drawn from traditional bluegrass, modern jazz, rock and even western swing music. In An Evening with Poe, our interpreters re-imagining the works of Edgar Allan Poe in the context of our modern world, and that’s exactly what we’re doing with the music for An Evening with Buster.

Whistle Peak Joins Derby Museum For “Horse Play” Exhibit

Ky Derby Museum Exhibit Promo

Whistle Peak has partnered up with the Kentucky Derby Museum at Churchill Downs to soundtrack this year’s exhibit, Horse Play, which documents Derby games for children and adults over the last 140 years. The exhibit features interactive games, KET’s documentary on Barney Bright’s Derby clock sculpture, as well as 8 instrumental tracks from David Boston and Billy Petot of Whistle Peak.

The exhibit opened on Monday and will run through December.

More details…

The Ky Derby Museum at Churchill Downs opened their newest exhibit yesterday, 4/14. It is entitled Horseplay and runs throughout 2014.  The exhibit documents Derby and horse themed games, for both children and adults, throughout history going as far back as the late 19th century up until modern day.  Whistle Peak is particularly excited about it because we were commissioned to soundtrack the exhibit. David Boston and Billy Petot of Whistle Peak wrote 8 new instrumental tracks to accompany the exhibit. The songs range from a 1920s era influenced jazz folk tune played on a banjo ukulele with a whistling melody to an arcade version of My Old Kentucky Home played on 1980s era synthesizers sounding like it came from Tetris. The soundtrack will eventually be released by the museum as a catalog of the exhibit with a derby themed board game and CD. Until then, your only means of hearing these songs is to see the exhibit.

Selection from Whistle Peak’s Audio Installation:
