Back 2 School Science of Sound Contest

Announcement, announcement! I invite you to participate in a back2school contest - a musical & scientific one!The questionIn the following video, artist Rico Loop is beat-boxing and playing bass, melodica, as well as a water bottle. The question is: How much water does Rico Loop drink each time he changes pitch?At 0:19, he blows a pitch without looping it. Then, he loops sounds at 0:23, 0:40, 0:53, and 1:02, when he's done drinking. So, you are looking for 4 quantities of water. You may give your answers as proportions instead of absolute values.PrizeI will be offering a special prize to the person coming up with the best answer - and explanations, of course!Please, e-mail me your answers, or post a comment.I'm going to give a few hints in the next couple of weeks... Stay tuned.
