For several years, we have been developing and studying computer-simulated models of brass instruments including the player's lips. We demonstrate here such a physical model. It is played inâ€¦ (More)

Blowing machines were developed since the early stage of research in musical acoustics because they are necessary for the study of musical instruments. The system under study is based on a previouslyâ€¦ (More)

Self-sustained musical instruments (bowed string, woodwind and brass instruments) can be modeled by nonlinear lumped dynamical systems. Among these instruments, flutes and flue organ pipes presentâ€¦ (More)

Properties of small amplitude oscillations of the single reed woodwind instruments near the oscillation threshold are investigated. Analytical formulae with explicit dependence on the physicalâ€¦ (More)

Reed instruments are modeled as self-sustained oscillators driven by the pressure inside the mouth of the musician. A set of nonlinear equations connects the control parameters (mouth pressure, lipâ€¦ (More)

The story of the "cylindrical saxophone" started with Benade (1988). The basic idea is that when the length of the missing part of a truncated cone is smaller than the wavelength, and thereforeâ€¦ (More)

Single-reed instruments can produce multiphonic sounds when they generate quasi-periodic oscillations. The aim of this article is to identify a minimal model of a single reedinstrument producingâ€¦ (More)

In this paper we exploit the method of numerical continuation combined with orthogonal collocation to determine the steady-state oscillations of a model of flute-like instruments that is formulatedâ€¦ (More)

Sound production on a "coaxial saxophone" is investigated experimentally. The coaxial saxophone is a variant of the cylindrical saxophone made up of two tubes mounted in parallel, which can be seenâ€¦ (More)
