Taimu Vibration

One of my students, who is Japanese, came by Chado and listened to me play while he was leaning on the counter in front of me. Afterwards he said, "These two (Taimu 2.3 and 2.7) vibrate the room and the counter more than the others."

Speculation from the scientific camp?

Re: Taimu Vibration

The counter was in harmony  with some notes you played (or even only with the bass note of each flute if was the case in which both where common with the harmonic series!??!)

It can sound bizzare I can easily feel my bag vibrating when I play Ro in some flutes (mainly a 2.4 and a 2.9), ehhehuehue... maybe it's in harmony with these too?

Re: Taimu Vibration

Sympathetic vibration possibly. I get that when standing by the piano and playing certain flutes. Often happens that the ductwork in the basement does it too when I am tuning flutes. Had a screen door spring once in G# and a hollow aluminum sculpture in the back yard that was an Eb.

Tairaku's student? Yes.

I have witnesses to the whole affair.

They were suspicious of it being an old Tasmanian mating ritual.

I've heard the table of a Manhasset music stand ringing along with レ on my 1.8.

Re: Taimu Vibration

Resonator guitars like dobrios, duolians and tricones are wonderful to play next to.

Re: Taimu Vibration

A piece called Toru's Mist by Gavin Bryars for shakuhachi, violin, piano and percussion specifies one open piano string at times to let it resonate sympathetically with the shakuhachi.

Re: Taimu Vibration

Actually X. it was your old 2.3 Taimu (Frankenschwantz) that was rumbling the room most. The Japanese student freaked out when I started playing it because the room was shaking.

Re: Taimu Vibration

I experienced an earthquake in Wellington some years ago. Would not want to do it again. Prayers to Christchurch!

Re: Taimu Vibration

One ex-member of our shakuhachi group here in Kochi is living in Christchurch at present; he is a surgeon so I'm sure he has his hands full at the moment.  He gave a brief report on a news channel on the Net back in September when they had another quake, a powerful one but luckily which caused no fatalities.  Now, of course, it's quite a different story.  Yes, prayers and well wishes to Christchurch.
