Vocal Line Resonant Frequency Breakdown

As I move forward with the creation of the Ruben’s Tubes, I’ve had to determine which frequencies resonant with the different tube lengths.  To do this, I’ve created a key, using notation of the vocal melody line, and listed below which resonant frequency it corresponds to in any of the four tubes. Each coloured line… Continue reading Vocal Line Resonant Frequency Breakdown

Testing Timbres: Clarinet

Generally, Ruben’s tubes demonstrations utilise pure frequencies in order to generate the best possible standing wave.  For my composition, I don’t want to be using generated tones based on frequency numbers, but rather work with instruments and play with different timbres.  As a result, I’ve been testing the Ruben’s Tube with different musical instruments. Below… Continue reading Testing Timbres: Clarinet
