ACOUSTICS OF THE HANG: A hand-played steel instrument

  title={ACOUSTICS OF THE HANG: A hand-played steel instrument},
  author={T. D. Rossing and Andrew Morrison and Uwe J. Hansen and Felix Rohner and Sabina Sch{\"a}rer},
The HANG is a new hand-played steel instrument developed by PANArt in Switzerland. We describe the modes of vibration, observed by holographic interferometry and the sound radiation from the instrument, observed by measuring the sound intensity in an anechoic room. A low-voice HANG is compared with a high voice-HANG. 
Handpan is a term used to describe a group of struck metallic musical instruments, which are similar in shape and sound to the Hang 1 (developed by PANArt in 2000). The handpan is a hand played
Analysis and Synthesis of the Handpan Sound
Handpan is a term used to describe a group of struck metallic musical instruments, which are similar in shape and sound to the Hang, developed by PANArt in January 2000. The Hang is a hand played
Sound of the HANG
The HANG was excited by taking multiple samples of each of a number of striking techniques with the hand, including single strokes from the soft part of the finger, as well as, the finger nail itself .
Modélisation et étude numérique des vibrations non-linéaires de plaques circulaires minces imparfaites : application aux cymbales
En mode normal de jeu, les instruments de percussion de la famille des gongs et des cymbales sont soumis a de fortes sollicitations qui imposent a ces structures minces un mouvement de grande


The HANG: A hand played steel drum
The HANG is a new steel instrument consisting of two spherical shells of steel, suitable for playing with the hands. Seven to nine notes are harmonically tuned around a central deep note which is
Acoustics of percussion instruments : Recent progress
Recent research on the acoustics of percussion instruments has focussed on observing their modes of vibration and understanding how they radiate sound. Holographic interferometry, on account of its
Music from Oil Drums: The Acoustics of the Steel Pan
The steel pan—made from the end of an oil drum—is probably the most important new acoustical (that is, nonelectronic) musical instrument developed in the 20th century. In addition to being the

Sound radiation from Caribbean steelpans.
Measurements were taken in an anechoic chamber using a four-microphone intensity probe to visualize the acoustic radiation from selected notes on a double second and a low tenor steelpan.
