I see im not the only one who visits the University of New South Wales' Musical Acoustics website . I frequently bore my classmates with random acoustical physics... stuff that not even the director cares about (or probably knows).Bladibla said:agreed. I think even with 'crap' instruments of flute and clarinet, it is good practise. It is like a marathon runner training with boots on, and when it comes to the actual match, they run effortlessly on trainers, because the boots were that much heavier.
Consider that note on the flute.
I cant even make the sound come out, and i think only very high quality flutes will make that sound come out good. Thank goodness that i dont play pieces with 4th octave f#
about the woodwind: yep, agreed again. Although, some dynamics you just can't do on woodwind instruments, such as accords (or chords).
Although, that link is suspicious...
Hmm... intriguing. Playing chords on a flute. The closest thing I saw to chords on woodwind instruments was when this one guy on TV played the saxophone and the clarinet at the same time and made it sound like a bagpipe.
