Title (EN) MUSICAL INSTRUMENT
(FR) INSTRUMENT DE MUSIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) A musical instrument comprising a mouthpiece and an elongated body, the elongated body comprises a plurality of finger contacts. The finger contacts comprise a first set of contacts arranged such that they may be simultaneously contacted by the little, ring, middle and index finger of the right hand and a second set of contacts arranged such that they may be simultaneously contacted by the little, ring, middle and index finger of the left hand. It further comprises a first thumb contact for contact by the right thumb and a second thumb contact for contact by the left thumb. The instrument comprises a tone generator controlled by the plurality of contacts, such that a first set of successive half tones is generated under control of the second set of contacts when the first thumb contact is operated, a second set of successive half tones is generated under control of the first set of contacts when the second thumb contact is operated, a third set of successive half tones is generated under control of the second set of contacts when the first thumb contact is freed; and a fourth set of successive half tones is generated under control of the first set of contacts when the second thumb contact is freed.
(FR) L'invention concerne un instrument de musique comprenant un embout buccal et un corps allongé, le corps allongé comprenant une pluralité de points de contact de doigt. Les points de contact de doigt comprennent un premier ensemble de points de contact agencés de telle sorte qu'ils peuvent être simultanément en contact avec l'auriculaire, l'annulaire, le majeur et l'index de la main droite et un second ensemble de points de contact agencés de telle sorte qu'ils peuvent être simultanément en contact avec l'auriculaire, l'annulaire, le majeur et l'index de la main gauche. L'instrument comprend en outre un premier point de contact de pouce pour un contact avec le pouce droit et un second point de contact de pouce pour un contact avec le pouce gauche. L'instrument comprend un générateur de tonalité commandé par la pluralité de points de contact, de telle sorte qu'un premier ensemble de demi-tons successifs est généré sous la commande du second ensemble de points de contact lorsque le premier point contact de pouce est actionné, un deuxième ensemble de demi-tons successifs est généré sous la commande du premier ensemble de points de contact lorsque le second point de contact de pouce est actionné, un troisième ensemble de demi-tons successifs est généré sous la commande du second ensemble de points de contact lorsque le premier point de contact de pouce est libéré ; et un quatrième ensemble de demi-tons successifs est généré sous la commande du premier ensemble de points de contact lorsque le second point de contact de pouce est libéré.
