Thong-o-Phone

  • What: A two octave set of open ended plastic pipes. The air column is excited by slapping a small rubber or cardboard panel over the end of a pipe and removing it quickly.
  • Who: SKoT, with assistance from Jason & Brett
  • Materials: The plastic pipes were sources from Remida, the chipboard pipe-mounting plate was from the Artifactory wood supply.
  • Tools used:
    • Drop Saw (cutting pipes to length)
    • rotobot (cutting holes in the chipboard pipe-mounting plate)
    • Extremely Large Hammer (banging pipes into holes that were perhaps a little on the small side)
    • Open Office (for calculating a frequency / pitch / length spreadsheet to ensure general Western-Music / MIDI pitch compatibility of the Thong-o-o-phone)
