Instrument Creation

The Yaybahar is an instrument invented by Gorgëm Sen. I created an instrument largely based off of his design, which includes two resonant bodies, springs, and vertical strings. The principle of sympathetic resonance is used here to create unexpected sounds.

I researched the different vibrating parts and investigated the acoustic properties of the instrument as part of a graduate certificate course in acoustic instruments. Check it out if you like!

I’ve used the sounds from my yaybahar to create some pieces
