Tibetan bowls have been traditionally used for ceremonial and meditation purposes, but are also increasingly being used in contemporary music-making. They are handcrafted using alloys of several metals and produce different tones, depending on the alloy composition, their shape, size and weight. Most important is the sound-producing technique used - either impacting or rubbing, or both simultaneously - as well as the excitation location, the hardness and friction characteristics of the exciting… Expand
When singing bowls don’t sing: a numerical and experimental investigation on the subtle dynamics of Tibetan bowls
Tibetan bowls have been traditionally used for ceremonial or meditation purposes, but also in contemporary music-making. They are handcrafted and produce different tones depending on their shape,Expand
The Etiology of chatter in the Himalayan singing bowl
The Himalayan singing bowl is a nearly symmetric idiophone played by rotating a wooden stick called a puja around the outer rim of the bowl. The vibrations of the bowl are excited by a stick-slipExpand
RESONANCE FREQUENCY VARIATIONS OF METALLIC TIBETAN SINGING BOWL WITH TEMPERATURE
Metallic signing bowls are used in sound therapy and in Buddhist prayers are widely studied for their resonance frequency modes [13,2]. Studies have also been carried out to understand the resonanceExpand

A modal method for the simulation of nonlinear dynamical systems with application to bowed musical intruments
Bowed instruments are among the most exciting sound sources in the musical world, mostly because of the expressivity they allow to a musician or the variety of sounds they can generate. From theExpand
The sound of bronze: Virtual resurrection of a broken medieval bell
Abstract The bell from the church of S. Pedro de Coruche is one rare surviving example of early bells, cast during the 13th century in Europe, which was exhumed from a crypt-ossuary in anExpand
Digital Synthesis of Sound Generated by Tibetan Bowls and Bells
TLDR
A general algorithm was developed to synthesise the sounds of selected musical instruments with an axisymmetrical shape and impact excitation which resulted in a sound pressure signal in selected points in space surrounding the instrument which is consistent with the signal generated by the actual instruments, and the results obtained can improve them.

HyperPuja: A Tibetan Singing Bowl Controller
TLDR
HyperPuja is a novel controller that closely mimicks the behavior of a Tibetan Singing Bowl rubbed with a "puja" stick by using wireless technology to keep the stick un-tethered as well as burying the electronics inside the the core of the stick. Expand
