Open Cylinder Larsen Tone Audio Feedback Instrumental Prototype

This audio feedback system is being developed by Ph.D. student Jason Cress, at the Center for New Music and Audio Technologies in Berkeley, CA. It is a prototype designed to digitally manage or “shape” Larsen tone audio feedback as it resonates through various media. In this case, air pressure waves are produced by a loudspeaker, routed through a configuration of pipes, split at an angle greater than 45 degrees, and picked up by a microphone on the other end.
