Sympathetic vibrations advice?!?!

November 6, 2018, 11:39 AM · Hi all,

This is my first posting on Violinist.com. I've really been enjoying the threads and posts the last couple months!

The reason for my post was to possibly gain information on two things. I recently did a small experiment showcasing the phenomenon of sympathetic vibrations. Below you can see video of the basic setup I was working with to get an idea of the concept.

Aside from the obvious things that a bigger budget would solve I was wondering about two things. 1. With all the repertoire out there in the "modern" classical realm for prepared instruments does anyone know of pieces of music written to display this for prepared instruments? 2. With all the challenges presented in how to make this scenario work does anyone have any ideas about what might work best acoustically in the stringed instrument family? What kind of strings, what kind of instruments (as the sender and the receivers)? Any ideas at all would be greatly appreciated!
