"Okay, so now I know we're on the subject of the mechanical generation of
sound. Are you saying that humankind has already exploited every possible
vibration of any vibratable object? That we've heard air pass through any
chamber that might generate sound?"

Yes, virtually so. Very likely to the degree that any future experiments
will not significantly differ in sound quality from something else already
tried. I mean we've had everything from humongus Tunnel Hums to comb and
paper music and I really think there is a lot of redundancy in just trying
new shapes and materials. MOST things of a similar scale actually vibrate
and sound similarly and we have tried EVERY scale of vibration possible as
well as a tremendous amount of different vibrating materials and shapes...
