Computer models and compositional applications of plastic corrugated tubes

  • STEFANIA SERAFIN (a1) and JURAJ KOJS (a1) (a2)

A flexible plastic corrugated tube known as the Hummer was a popular sonic toy in the early 1970s. It produces pleasing sonorities when whirled in the air. In this article, we propose a physically informed model of a singing corrugated tube. The model was used in the composition Garden of the Dragon, which is also described in this paper.
