Creating a Virtual Suikinkutsu
This paper describes the process undertaken to construct a virtual suikinkutsu through sound synthesis. Firstly a description is given of a physical suikinkutsu and its inherent unique sound qualities. The suikinkutsu's physical qualities provide a model for the characteristics required for use by the virtual suikinkutsu. A brief discussion of related works which will aid in informing the virtual suikinkutsu is given. The finished virtual model is described and a comparison is undertaken between recordings made on the virtual suikinkutsu and recordings taken of a physical suikinkutsu. Finally a look into future work on the model is undertaken.
