Nonlinear dynamics and chaos in musical instruments
Nonlinear phenomena are essential for the production of harmonic sounds from musical instruments with sustained tone through the phenomenon of mode locking. Under conditions where mode locking is circumvented, the sound of the instrument is 'multiphonic', an effect sometimes used in modern compositions. Simple impulsively excited instruments such as guitars and bells have nearly linear behaviour, with all modes simply decaying exponentially with time. Gongs and cymbals with shallow...[Show more]
