The talk will look at the physics behind some musical wind instruments: the reed woodwinds, and the brass family. These all rely on an acoustical feedback loop, involving the linear acoustics of the instrument tube and a nonlinear flow valve at the reed or the brass-player’s lips. Simulation models will be used to explore the details of the resulting waveforms, and also to map the playing behaviour into a graphical representation of a parameter space relevant to the player. These “playability maps” shed light on what has to be learned by a beginner on these instruments, in order to get the best out of their instrument.
