The didgeridoo (also known as a didjeridu or didge) is a wind instrument developed by Indigenous Australians of northern Australia at least 1,500 years ago and is still in widespread usage today both in Australia and around the world. It is sometimes described as a natural wooden trumpet or “drone pipe”. Musicologists classify it as an aerophone. The instrument is traditionally made from Eucalyptus trees which have had their interiors hollowed out by termites or died of other causes.
Lo particular de este didgeridoo en concreto es que es electrónico:
Kyle Evans, a 24-year-old artist, bought his first didgeridoo in a small shop in Cairns, Australia, three years ago. The owner helped him pick out one of his handmade Aboriginal instruments, and after Evans taught himself to play, he decided to build an enhanced version: an electronically modified, Bluetooth-enhanced PVC pipe that cranks out didgeridoo-like sound with added digital flourishes.
El invento, explicado en Popular Science, apareció hace un par de semanas en MAKE. No he escuchado cómo suena el artefacto en cuestión pero me despierta una cierta curiosidad. El sonido del didgeridoo es bastante particular y me gustaría ver hasta qué punto esta versión es capaz de reproducirlo sin que cante demasiado.
