Project Proposal: When Music Meets Fire

I want to create a live performance, installation piece, utilising multiple Ruben’s Tubes as a visual component, responding to an original composition written to emphasise specific resonant frequencies.  These resonant frequencies will depict a standing wave visualised in the flames of the Ruben’s Tube.

Currently, my plan is to work with a set of tubes which all have different fundamental tones, and routing sounds through the different tubes to generate visualisations at different times.  An alternate approach to this however could be to route different instrument sounds up to each tube, thus using each pipe to visualise the standing waves of each instrument.

As generated tones work best to visualise the standing waves, I will need to experiment with a Ruben’s Tube to determine how the medium reacts to different timbres.
