Sonograms of Clarinet Multiphonics
Last summer, I posted a few pictures of clarinet multiphonic sound sonograms (sometimes called spectrograms).
I just posted a new short video: Sonograms of Clarinet Multiphonics.
It includes four sounds:
- Bb clarinet multiphonic series
- Bb clarinet multiphonic with glissando on part of the sound
- Bb clarinet split tone showing formants
- Contrabass clarinet from subtone to full sound (not a multiphonic, but such a rich spectrum)
I'm indebted to Pr. Eric Heller, professor of the Harvard General Education course The Physics of Music and Sound, and to my clarinet teacher, Armand Angster, a specialist of all things clarinet.
