Seed to sound
Designing the internal bore of the Didgeridoo has a direct relationship in understanding the organic nature of the material being used.
Internal bore design - material and finishing need to be in harmony.
Bore work is where the real magic and secrets are artfully concealed.
The elegant simplicity of the outer form goes to conceal inner refinements that are quite subtle and complex. And so Black Hemp Didgeridoo's inner core or 'Heart' is it's bore, it has been contoured and designed so that the entire bore is of harmonious balance. These instruments are crafted to exquisite refinement for pitch, tone, dynamics and response. Yet i do believe that the refining of the bore and it's design are infinite.
Tuning and bore designing are much like a balancing act - the highs must be balanced with the lows, and all parts of the instruments bore brought into alignment with each other.
I see the tuning and designing of the bore as a holistic art, an ongoing journey into correcting bore imbalances, 'to produce an instrument of harmonious proportions'. There are certain beneficial pressure points along the instruments bore, each with their own remedial indicators. If the upper, mid and lower fundamentals are out of alignment, you would look to correct the bore where needed, to bring into balance. The heart of the highs, mids and lows live within different proportions of the bores pressure points. These considerations must be balanced with a consideration for the whole.
