ABSTRACT
The author describes the process of designing Bamboo Wind Flutes. Emphasis is placed on the downward direction of the holes or apertures cut right above each internode to drain out water, the shape and size of apertures to achieve different tones, and the horizontal positioning to capture more wind. The author recommends coating the interior of the nodes with linseed oil and the exterior with polyurethane to preserve it. Also mentioned are some designs like the multi-culm, vertical, ladder, and geometric forms.
