Do they strike the end of the tubes to create the bass sound of the
vibrating air in the tube?
UAKTI, a very amazing band from Belo Horizonte (Brazil) do that for a long
time. They lead all tubes into a box where they put a microphone - a
beautifull bass instrument: quick, percussive and melodic. They have some
CD distributed in the US or even worldwide. There are many other
instruments they created using glass, water, rubber membranes on flutes,,,
No looping. Straight compositions, fast rhythms, almost classic style,
